Houses of Parliament A-Level Politics Trip

To enhance our cultural capital and understanding of the British political system, our Year 12 Politics class ventured to the focal point of UK politics, the Houses of Parliament. During our visit, we learnt the history and origins of Parliament and were taken on a tour. We learnt about how has the franchise was extended, how the 1997 House of Lords Reforms changed the second chamber, how debates work, what are one-line, two-line and three-line whips are and much more.
