Use of the Commons Chamber by the United Kingdom Youth Parliament — 20 Jul 2010 at 23:04

The majority of MPs resolved to allow the UK Youth Parliament to use the House of Commons Chamber on an annual basis. This vote was re-held, a few days later resulting in the same outcome.

  • That this House
  • welcomes the work of the United Kingdom Youth Parliament in providing young people with an opportunity to engage with the political process;
  • notes that the House agreed on 16 March 2009 to allow the Youth Parliament to meet once in the Chamber; recalls that this meeting took place on 30 October 2009; and
  • accordingly resolves that the UK Youth Parliament should be allowed to meet once a year in the Chamber of this House for the duration of this Parliament.

Following the vote the decision was questioned, and the vote was held again a few days later
