House of Commons date for Edwyn

Brighton & Hove's representative on the UK Youth Parliament, Edwyn Wilson-Verrall, has taken part in a debate in the House of Commons chaired by the Speaker, Hon John Bercow MP.

Among the decisions made by the Youth Parliament following the debate was an agreement to campaign to lower the voting age to 16 during 2018.

Edwyn said afterwards: "The day was amazing! It was very unique and special to get to sit and debate in the House of Commons. I'll never forget it."

His visit to the House of Commons was supported by the council's youth participation team.
