HISTORY and sociology A-level students from Sidmouth College quizzed their local MP over tuition fees and other topics, during a trip to the Houses of Parliament.

Their tour included the House of Lords and they witnessed the Speaker’s procession into the House of Commons for the start of Prime Minister’s question time.
