Careers & Alumni officer Cormac Frazer last Monday, 13th February, facilitated a discussion amongst members of St Chad’s College with Durham City MP, Roberta Blackman-Woods.
The session saw Roberta sharing her experiences in Parliament with those in attendance, and was followed by a Question & Answer session. The event saw members of all three undergraduate years asking pertinent questions, ranging from public communications to homelessness and from community action to the role of civil society in shaping public policy.
Roberta tweeted afterwards:
Glad to demystify role of an MP with great group of @StChadsDurham students this evening. Hope now have better understanding of work MPs do!

Speaking with Press Comm, Cormac said: “it was an honour to host Roberta, and great to broaden our understanding MPs’ work – especially at a time of such political division.”
