Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, Jenny Willott, recently met with politics students at St David's sixth-form college in Cardiff.

Ms Willott gave the group an overview of her work as an MP and also of her role as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Employment Relations & Consumer Affairs and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Women and Equalities. This was folllowed by a lively Q & A session and discussion on various issues, including Council cuts to youth services and the appalling situation in Syria. Miss Willott, who visits St David's College every year, said:

"It is so important that people understand how Parliament works and feel involved in the political process, given the impact politics has on all our lives. I think it is essential that MPs do all they can to get out and about and open up our sometimes obscure and confusing political system, particularly for young people as they prepare to join the voting population.

"I really enjoy meeting the students at St David's, who are always very well informed and keen to engage with politicians. Each year is different, with a variety of topics raised but I am always delighted to see young people taking such an interest in politics and current affairs."
