Justin Tomlinson MP has welcomed members of the 1st Haydon Wick Rangers to Parliament.
The group of Guides, based in Haydon Wick, arranged the visit as part of their work on empowering young women. Girlguiding is one of the largest organised group activities anywhere in the world. With HM The Queen as its Patron, Girlguiding UK, sets its mission as empowering girls to be their best and become confident women.
Following a tour of the Palace of Westminster, the young women sat down with Justin to put their questions to him on everything Brexit to equality. The visit concluded with Justin and the group visiting Westminster Hall, which is currently home to an exhibition on universal suffrage and the work of the Suffragette movement.
Justin Tomlinson MP said: "It's always good to welcome fellow North Swindon residents to Parliament and it was fantastic to see the enthusiasm of the Rangers. They are doing some excellent work in the community and I look forward to supporting their fundraising efforts later this year".
