Tessa Munt MP greets Lympsham children - and guinea pig - at House of Commons
WHEN Burnham MP Tessa Munt invited the children of Lympsham First School to the House of Commons, she had not expected to be welcoming their guinea pig mascot, Buster on the visit too.
The House of Commons authorities were quite happy to allow Buster through the security gates once they realised he wouldn't run around the corridors.
Tessa said: “Many local school groups visit me in the House of Commons and I hope many more will take up the opportunity.
“As for Buster, he was very well behaved. In fact I'm pretty sure he slept through the whole visit, unlike the children who asked a lot of excellent questions.”
