Use of the House of Commons Chamber by the United Kingdom Youth Parliament — 21 Jul 2010 at 23:15

Chris Grayling MP, Epsom and Ewell voted to allow the UK Youth Parliament to use the House of Commons chamber.

The majority of MPs voted in favour of allowing the UK Youth Parliament to use the House of Commons chamber on an annual basis.

The text of the motion which was passed read:

  • 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.

This was the second time a vote on this motion was held as the result of the first vote was questioned.
