Young People and Democracy — 9 Mar 2004 at 19:27

Ayes called for the Government to legislate to reduce the voting age; Noes merely noted the Electoral Commissions review and that the Government will review it.

I beg to move,

That this House notes the concern shared by all political parties at the lack of participation in the political process by young people and the decreasing turnout in elections throughout the country; welcomes the work of many charities, political experts, young people and organisations representing them, who have worked together in their belief that lowering the voting age would improve the quality of politics in the United Kingdom; and calls on the Government to legislate to lower the voting age for all public elections to 16 years.

I beg to move, To leave out from "Kingdom" to end and add

"but notes that the independent Electoral Commission's review of voting age and candidacy age is soon to be published and that the Government will carefully consider its conclusions, alongside the work of other organisations".

Question put accordingly, That the original words stand part of the Question:-

The House divided: Ayes 50, Noes 346.
