Lord Haskel visits Cardinal Wiseman
The Government and Politics department was delighted to welcome Lord Haskel last Friday
The Government & Politics department was delighted to welcome Lord Haskel to Cardinal Wiseman on Friday, 11th November as part of the Peers in Schools programme.
The Labour peer spoke about the work of the House of the Lords and responded to a number of questions from Year 12 and 13 Politics students. These ranged from the role and democratic legitimacy of the upper chamber, a typical day's business and the role of political parties.
With students having exams in January, this was an ideal opportunity for them to supplement their knowledge with Lord Haskel's expertise. It was a greatly beneficial experience for all concerned.
