Tune in to see youth democracy in action – UKYP House of Commons debate on BBC Parliament, 23rd Nov 20th November 2012

This autumn, over 250,000 young people voted in the ‘Make Your Mark‘ national ballot to decide what the UK Youth Parliament should campaign on for the year ahead. The top five issues (with one being chosen by Members of Youth Parliament) will be debated by Members of Youth Parliament in the House of Commons on 23rd November 2012, before deciding on their national campaign for 2013.

As in previous years (pictured above), the day will be broadcast live on BBC Parliament from 11am.
