Students to quiz Lord Hoyle

Politics students at two Island schools will meet a member of the House of Lords next week.

The former Labour MP for Warrington North Lord Hoyle, is to visit St Ninian's and Ramsey Grammar (pictured) as part of the 'Peers in Schools' outreach programme.

He'll talk about the work of the House of Lords and describe his own background and how he became a peer.

Students will have the chance to ask questions and tell Lord Hoyle about the Manx political system.

Head of Social Science at St Ninian's, Sara Crisford, says there'll be some interesting comparisons between the Manx and UK political systems (audio file attached):
