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

The majority of MPs to close the debate on allowing the UK Youth Parliament to use the House of Commons Chamber on an annual basis.

The vote on the substantive motion was held a few days later.

The motion under debate was:

  • 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.
