Medway’s Young People Represented at the House of Commons

Medway’s Members of Youth Parliament, Ore Emmanuel MYP and Thomas Baldock MYP, attended the 2018 UKYP sitting in the House of Commons. The top 5 Make Your Mark issues were debated in a sitting chaired by the Speaker of the House, Rt Hon John Bercow MP.

Over 10,000 young people from Medway voted on the Make Your Mark campaign and Thomas and Ore were both proud and excited to carry their voices to the heart of UK democracy.

Following the day sitting MYPs cast a vote for the issue which they believed should become the national campaign, the outcome of which was Votes at 16 and Ending Knife Crime.

Overall the day was thrilling for both youth workers, who had a special mention by the Speaker, and of course the elected young people of this country. MYPs are the only outside group aside MPs who can sit on the green benches, representing the immense opportunity that the UK Youth Parliament enjoys.

The sitting also marks the start of UK Parliament Week which MYC will also take part in. Early next year both MYP positions will be up for election and candidates should put themselves forward to MYC, if they are not already members.
