Chance for lucky student to spend a day in Parliament with Dearne MP

Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey is offering the chance for a female sixth form or college student to shadow him in Parliament for a day.

John is pictured with his former student apprentice Charlotte Pocklington and said the latest recruitment is part of celebrations for International Women’s Day and has been organised by All Party Parliamentary Group for Women in Parliament.

He said: “I have written to local sixth forms and colleges inviting students to apply by emailing me, explaining the one law they would pass to help women if they were Prime Minister for a day.” Shadowing will take place on March 12 and transport and food costs will be covered by sponsors HSBC.
