'Life at Westminster' Talk with Former MP John Pugh

Friday, 08 September 2017

  • John Pugh Enrichment Lecture Series

Former MP John Pugh will visit Bolton School on Friday 22nd September to give a free talk about ‘Life in Westminster’.

The event will start at 7.00pm in the Girls’ Division Great Hall. Members of the public are invited to join Bolton School pupils and staff on this occasion.

John Pugh was first elected to the House of Commons in the 2001 general election and became the Liberal Democrat MP for Southport. He has 17 years of experience as an MP and played a very active role in the recent referendums and elections at Westminster, but chose not to run for parliament when Theresa May called the election in June 2017.

In his first parliamentary term, John served on the Transport, Local Government and Regions Select Committee and was Liberal Democrat education spokesperson with responsibility for schools. Following his re-election to Parliament in 2005, he served as shadow spokesperson for Transport and Health and worked with Vince Cable as Shadow Treasury spokesperson. With the formation of the coalition government in 2010 he was appointed as Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Committee for Health and Social Care, a position he relinquished at the end of 2013 to focus on producing a report examining the social and economic issues facing the North.

This free event is open to everyone and will take place in the Girls’ Division Great Hall on Friday 22nd September, beginning at 7.00pm. Refreshments will be available beforehand from 6.30pm. Parking will be available in the Girls’ Division Quad, which will be clearly signposted on the night.
