Hull Youth Parliament enters election phase

Scarlett Rowland

The closing date has passed to stand for Hull's Youth Parliament.

Hull teenagers interested in becoming involved in decision-making in the city will take part in elections this year for the Youth Parliament.

Over the past 12 months, they've been part of mental health initiatives, the launch of a bus travel scheme, and even spoken in the House of Commons.

15 students have applied for the March election, with four places at stake. 

Current Member of the Youth Parliament, Scarlett Rowland, says it provides great opportunities: "One of my main highlights was to go to the House of Commons as that was my first trip to London. I got to see a lot of new things, meet a lots of new people and to attend regional meetings. Being able to speak in the House of Commons was a surreal moment."
