David Cameron welcomes School Reporters to the Cabinet Room


Prime Minister David Cameron was questioned on a wide range of issues when he welcomed BBC School Reporters into the Cabinet Room at 10 Downing Street.

Regarding the government's spending cut decisions, one student claimed the reduced number of streetlights in his county were "putting our safety in jeopardy and giving locals less confidence to go out at night".

School Reporters also raised the subjects of rising unemployment, changes to the National Health Service and the Prime Minister's proposals to tackle gang-related crimes amongst youth.

On a lighter note, the Prime Minister revealed he has never danced down the Downing Street stairs like Hugh Grant in the film 'Love Actually'.

Asked about the experience, one student said: "It's something I'll remember for a long, long time."
