Pupils from Saltoun and Humbie Primary Schools have visited the Scottish Parliament where they were welcomed by Martin Whitfield MSP and given a tour of the parliamentary estate.

The South Scotland MSP met the pupils on their arrival at Holyrood, which followed his visit to Saltoun for a Q&A earlier this year. Mr Whitfield then took the group on the tour, which included the parliament’s debating chamber, before answering more of their questions.

Martin Whitfield MSP said: 

“Having visited Saltoun primary school and met the class earlier this year, I was delighted to be able to return the favour and welcome them and the Humbie pupils to parliament for a special tour of the building.

Visiting parliament is the best way to learn more about the way it works and how decisions are made, and I hope the pupils enjoyed the experience and found it helpful for their parliamentary project.

They were certainly just as engaged and enthusiastic as when I visited them in February and had many more probing questions ready for me!”
