Skipton MP Julian Smith has hosted his annual lunch for head teachers and student leaders.

Every secondary school was invited to nominate the head or senior teacher plus two pupils to attend the lunch at The Red Lion in Burnsall.

Mr Smith answered questions on tuition fees, high- speed rail and Scottish independence, and Mike Davies, chief executive of Skipton firm Principle Healthcare, spoke about the importance of skills in the jobs market.

Mr Smith said: “This was my fourth school leaders’ lunch and it continues to be an excellent event.

“It brings together young people from different schools and gives them a chance to discuss issues that matter.

“I hope they found it interesting and thank the head teachers who took time out to bring the pupils.”
