Students from City of Wolverhampton College put one of the city’s political leaders through their paces when he was quizzed on current affairs.
The group of 30 students, who are all studying Uniformed Public Services at the college, put their questions to MP Rob Marris, during a debate on January 29 at the Wellington Road campus.
The debate centred on government cuts in public services, primarily in the police force. Other questions posed looked at Trident, the EU referendum and university degrees for those thinking of a career in policing.
Student Jack Daniels, who organised the event, said: “I would like to thank everyone that attended and supported the debate. It’s important for us students to show that we have a voice and we want to be heard because the cuts from the government will affect not only our futures, but the publics as well.”
Curriculum Manager Dan Clarke said: “The debate was very successful and the students came up with some insightful and relevant questions.”
