On Tuesday 12 April, Victoria Prentis MP welcomed students from la maison d’éducation des Loges to the Palace of Westminster. The group of a dozen girls was given a tour of Parliament by Victoria. She then held a question-and-answer session alongside Dominic Grieve QC MP, the current chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee. Both Victoria and Dominic addressed the pupils in French while speaking about their work as Members of Parliament.

La maison d’éducation des Loges is a school in the Saint-Germain-en-Laye suburb of Paris. It was established for the female descendants of recipients of the Légion d’honneur – France’s highest honour for military and civil service. The students are currently on a school visit to the United Kingdom and were invited to Parliament by Victoria, who has strong personal connections to France.
