House of Lords receive second primary school visit in 2013

On 18 July the All Party Parliamentary Group demonstrated their further support for the development of duplicate bridge, by inviting twelve pupils from Spaxton Primary School, Somerset to the Houses of Parliament to play a game of Minibridge.

On their arrival, the children were treated to a meeting with the Lord Speaker of the House of Lords, Baroness D'Souza. The Lord Speaker asked the children which game they preferred from chess or bridge, and all of them answered that bridge was their favourite! Afterwards, the school was treated to a grand tour of the Houses of Parliament conducted by Lord Skelmersdale and Lord Hamilton.
