Young people make their mark at House of Commons

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

make your mark

More than 7,000 young people across Stockton-on-Tees voted in this year’s Make Your Mark youth consultation.

Make Your Mark - the UK’s largest youth consultation - is held annually to encourage the nation's young people aged 11 to 18 to vote on the issues that matter to them the most.

The five topics that received the most votes were selected by the UK Youth Parliament to debate in the House of Commons last Friday (13 November).

Member of the UK Youth Parliament for Stockton Borough, Jess Hugill, took part in this year’s debate which covered a range of national issues, including mental health services, transport, and a living wage.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Youth Assembly worked with young people across the Borough to collect votes and offer more information about the campaign.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Bob Cook, said: “As future voters, opportunities like Make Your Mark remind our young people about the importance and value of having their voices heard locally and nationally

“The Council is committed to ensuring young people express their views so it’s great that so many of them got involved this year.”
