A 12-year-old boy who wrote a letter on immigration to the Prime Minister was “shocked” to receive a reply from Downing Street.
Harvey Tower’s class was tasked by their teachers at St Columba’s College with writing a letter to Theresa May on a current issue.
His reply congratulated him on a well-written letter and saying it would be passed onto the Foreign Office.
His mum, Alyson Tower, said: “As you can imagine he was absolutely thrilled and really quite shocked that Theresa May would take time to respond, as were we.”
The reply was the first time Alyson and Harvey’s dad Mark had heard about Harvey’s letter.

Mrs Tower said: “As a typical 12-year-old boy who is normally just interested in sport, we were really proud of him, and surprised by how thrilled he was at receiving this and could not wait to tell his friends, who were very impressed.”
