Harry to hold Public Q&A with MPs

As part of Harry’s campaign to involve young people in democracy, he is holding a series of public Q&A surgeries with Members of Parliament in Sheffield.

At 2pm on Wednesday 27th of July the first of these sessions will take place with David Blunkett, MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough. Harry will chair the Q&A between young people and Mr Blunkett. All the sessions are open to the public and any young person can attend.

“This is the first time in Sheffield that young people can speak to their MP and their Youth Parliament Members. It’s promising that Sheffield MPs have agreed to this scheme, and I hope the session with David Blunkett and the others to follow will be a success. It’s my wish that this will start a trend of young people taking part in politics and questioning the people they’ve elected.– Harry MYP

Earlier this year Harry held a Q&A with the Shadow Education Secretary Andy Burnham MP

Three more surgeries are planned in the following days with the Sheffield MPs Angela Smith, Clive Betts, and Meg Munn:

Harry encourages as many young people as possible to attend these open public meetings so that he and MPs can be held accountable to the people they represent.
