Mock Parliament

QMC Politics Department transformed Central Studio Theatre into the House of Commons for this week's Mock Parliament Event. Students took on the roles of Prime Minister, Education Secretary, Home Secretary, Backbench MPs and the equivalent roles for the opposition party, and debated a range of issues including Trident Missiles, US Presidency, Tuition Fees, GCSE/A Level Reform and Capital Punishment. There was perfect order for the duration of friendly and supportive questioning from the backbenchers and more challenging probing from the opposition party! The debate provided a great opportunity for students to gain hands on experience of proceedings.
