Geraint Davies, Swansea West MP, is visiting Sketty Primary School to talk about his work in particular in relation to the Environment, during Parliament Week on Tuesday 5 November.
Parliament Week is a is a programme of events and activities that connects people with Parliament and democracy in the UK, which schools in Swansea have been invited to join.
Geraint Davies, Labour MP for Swansea West, said: “School children across Swansea are rightly concerned about the climate crisis we face and what MPs and they can do about it. Many have taken part in climate action strikes.
“I’ll be talking about how we must change the way we live by the Government investing in better public transportation and electrification of our trains and making electric cars affordable for all.
“We also need to move forward with the lower-cost proposals for our Swansea Bay tidal lagoon.
“Meanwhile, many Swansea children are concerned about plastic and air pollution so I’ll be asking Sketty pupils if they support my Parliamentary bills to tax plastic so producers use recyclable alternatives and my Clean Air Bill which puts the right to clean air into law.
“I’ll be bringing an air pollution monitor and asking pupils whether they agree with me that Government should ensure air in schools and hospitals is clean by World Health Organisation standards.
“I also want to know if they agree that their parents shouldn’t be leaving their car engine running if they pick them up in one outside school.
“In every home where a school child lives across Swansea they can help urge their parents to use less plastic and less diesel to help them urge producers and Parliament to take tougher action to protect our environment and all our futures.
“Sketty and Swansea Children can’t afford to wait to ‘grow up’ before making their voices heard on the climate crisis at it is they who will suffer most and longest from a future that continues to be poisoned by the ‘grown ups’”.
