Nick Clegg held a question and answer session with hundreds of students at King George V College.
The deputy prime minister spent 45 minutes fielding questions at the Southport college. He was quizzed on university tuition fees and the Syrian civil war by King George students and learners from nearby Southport College.
An informal vote was also held on whether the UK should continue paying foreign aid to overseas countries, or whether the money would be spent better at home. The students were evenly split on the issue. Adele Wills, King George V principal, said: “It was fantastic to see so many students engaging in political debate with the deputy prime minister.”
