ROLES were reversed at Trawden Primary School yesterday when children asked the questions.

The man in the hot seat was Pendle MP Gordon Prentice, who agreed to talk about his life as an MP as part of the school's arts fortnight.

After the interview session Mr Prentice said he had survived the numerous questions that were thrown at him and even turned the tables and asked them a couple of questions.

He saidf-zf+z and how often had I been on TVf-z. They also asked me about the travelling involved and their ears pricked up when I mentioned that secondary school pupils come in to the office and follow me round to see what I do."

Mr Prentice asked the youngsters what improvements they would like to see in Trawden. Suggestions included a hockey or netball area and more playgrounds for older children.

He said: "I suggested that they get together and write to me with their suggestions."
