Anneliese was invited to speak to Bracknell and Wokingham College’s Current Affairs Group.
This group was made up of interested students who listened to Anneliese discuss her role in the European Parliament and how her work there is related to what she does to represent her constituents in the South East. Anneliese answered questions put to her by the students, and encouraged them to think about what the implications would be if the UK left the EU.
Anneliese said “With the referendum on the UK’s continuing membership of the EU coming up within the next two years, it’s great to see so many students taking an interest in European issues and thinking about what we in the South East can gain from the UK’s membership of the EU. For many of the students I spoke to, the referendum on whether the UK should remain a part of the EU could be their first vote, and it was very clear that they were taking the responsibility of making this decision very seriously.
“I always enjoy visiting schools and colleges to speak to students about my work in the European Parliament and the South East, and I hope to have many more opportunities to do so in the future.”
