UK Youth Parliament at the House of Commons

Catherine Munyarari and Gabriel Dobrahain-Yates both have been selected as 2 of 5 Birmingham UKYP’s to attend the UK Youth Parliament at the House of Commons on Friday 15th November 2013. The event follows on from the Make Your Mark Ballot Vote that Handsworth Grammar School participated in. This debate will be only the fifth time that any people other than MPs will have sat on the green benches in the House of Commons. It will also be broadcast live on the BBC Parliament Channel. They will debate the top five issues as voted for by thousands of young people from across the UK from the UKYP Manifesto. At the end of the five debates, MYPs will vote for the one issue that they would like to see MPs discuss and then take action on. We wish them all the best as they travel to London.
