UK Youth Parliament

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2009

To ask the Leader of the House with reference to the answer of 25 July 2007 to the hon. Member for Stroud, Official Report, column 1124W, on the UK Youth Parliament, what plans she has to discuss the possible use of the Chamber of the House by the UK Youth Parliament with (a) the Modernisation of the House of Commons Committee, (b) other committees of the House and (c) the House authorities. (261369)

The issues involved are ones of principle rather than of practice. It is therefore right that the whole House should decide.

I understand that the House authorities would be able to make appropriate practical arrangements if the House were to decide to allow the Youth Parliament to use the Chamber.
