Members of Youth Parliament aged 11-18 will sit in the House of Commons for the eleventh time in November 2019. They will take part in an annual debate chaired by the Speaker of the House, and then vote to decide which issues should become the UK Youth Parliament’s priority campaigns for the year ahead.

2018 – 10th Meeting of the UK Youth Parliament

On Friday 9th November 2018, Members of the UK Youth Parliament gathered from across the UK to debate in the House of Commons chamber. Ending knife crime, mental health, ‘equal pay, for equal work’, tackling homelessness and ‘votes at 16’ were all topics of debate. Each topic was chosen in a record-breaking ballot of more than 1.1 million young people. At the end of the day, they marked the Representation of the People Act 1918 which granted the vote to some women and all men.
