Head of Scottish Labour Party visits P7

Last week MSP Iain Gray came into school to tell us about the Scottish Parliament and what its like being an MSP. We got the chance to ask him about his job and his opinions. We have his photo and signature on the wall !

Here are some of the questions we asked him:                                                                                                 1.  Primary 7: Is the power station going to be knocked down?  

    Iain Gray:  It needs to be decommissioned by 2015 but if you feel strongly about this why don’t you write to Scottish Power and tell them .

2. Primary 7: What are the worst bits about your job ?

Iain Gray: Lots of people come to me with problems and sometimes there is nothing I can do to help them. It is quite hard to send  people away.

3. Primary 7: Do you enjoy the debates at the parliament?

Iain Gray: I like the debates but sometimes they can be a bit boring if its not about something you’re interested in.   Sometimes MSPs do fall asleep!

  1. It was a real pleasure to talk to P7 in the school and then later in the week at the Parliament. I hope they enjoyed their visit to Holyrood. I was very impressed by the range of questions I was asked and how much the class knew about politics. It was especially good to hear pupils thinking about local issues like the power station.
