Houses of Parliament Trip 18/4/16
Our visit to the Houses of Parliament earlier this year was the Society's highlight of the year! Kindly sponsored by Guildford MP Anne Milton, we kicked off with a guided tour of the Palace of Westminster, afterwards we split up and visited nearby landmarks such as Downing Street, the Supreme Court and of course a parliamentary pub or two. Finally we had a private reception with lots of Conservative MPs including: Education Secretary Nicky Morgan MP, Armed Forces Minister Penny Mordaunt MP and everyone's favourite eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg MP.
An Afternoon with Daniel Hannan 12/3/16
Fresh off the EU campaign trail, we heard from our local MEP and leading Vote Leave campaigner Daniel Hannan. It was a great opportunity to quiz him on his work as our local MEP for the South East and debate his views on the upcoming EU referendum!

We pitted our very own Social Secretary Ricardo Mendes, chair of Surrey Students for Britain, against Surrey alumnus George Potter, chair of Surrey Students for Europe in the first EU debate of the year.
