I am running a ballot for constituents to allocate two tickets for Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday, 27 February 2019.
Famous around the world, Prime Minister’s Questions is widely regarded as the high point of the Parliamentary week. Each Wednesday at noon when the House of Commons is sitting, the Prime Minister faces a grilling by Members of Parliament from all political parties on any issue which they wish to raise. For the Leader of the Opposition it is their opportunity to question the Prime Minister directly across the Despatch Box.
With exchanges becoming increasingly fraught and confrontational as the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition seek to outdo each other, Prime Minister’s Questions frequently lives up to its description as the bear pit of British politics.
I would warmly encourage the residents of Eddisbury to enter the ballot for the chance to experience first-hand the unique atmosphere in the Chamber during PMQs.
To enter the ballot for two tickets to watch Prime Minister’s Questions please send the names and addresses of the two attendees to firstname.lastname@example.org together with a contact telephone number and e-mail address. The winner will be drawn at random and notified on Friday, 15 February 2019.
Please note that you must be a constituent in order to enter the ballot.
