MP For A Week drops you into the shoes of a backbench MP. And the job, as they say, is what you make of it.

Will you debate the governments controversial Homework Bill or help Mrs Billingsley sort her rubbish collection? Want to hear what a climate change lobbyist has to say, or ask the Environment Minister about electric cars? Vote on a video game ban, or hold a constituency surgery?

MP For A Week is a game from the UK Parliaments Education Service for 11-16 year olds designed to support their understanding of Parliament and democracy
