David Amess MP (second from right) talks to three Commonwealth ScholarsAn event for Commonwealth Scholars, organised by the Council for Education in the Commonwealth (CEC) with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), was held on 21 June 2011 in the CPA Room, Westminster Hall, Houses of Parliament, London.

The event provided Commonwealth Scholars with the opportunity to meet Parliamentarians from both the House of Lords and the House of Commons in an informal atmosphere. Sir Alan Haselhurst MP, Chair of the CPA, gave a short talk on the UK Parliament and the role of the CPA. After the event, Scholars had the chance to visit the public viewing gallery to see the Lords in action.
