Motion text

That this House notes the exceptional contribution made by the British Youth Council's UK Youth Parliament to public life, especially through local communities, and its ability to mobilise and engage the broader youth population in political issues and campaigning; further notes the hard work of the charity and its volunteers in fulfilling their role in representing the voice of young people to Parliament, where on 13 November 2015, 300 young elected representatives debated in the House their priority campaigns for 2016 from five topics chosen by a record-breaking ballot of 968,900 young people across the UK; recognises the efforts of young people seeking to inform and influence public policy development; encourages all hon. Members of the House to view the debates on BBC Parliament or to read them in Hansard, and seek to amplify and promote their issues in the forums that matter, including Parliament itself; and urges the Government to make time for hon. Members to debate, and the Government to respond to, those issues raised, which this year included the Living Wage, curriculum for life, public transport, mental health and tackling racism and religious discrimination.
