Caroline Flint backs Democracy Day

Young people were making their mark this week, as Caroline Flint joined Emma Spencer and Caitlin Boyle, Doncaster two Youth Caroline___Emma_Spencer.JPGParliament representatives to welcome young people from across the borough to a day of democratic debate about what young people want in Doncaster.

Said Caroline:  “I first got involved in politics at my FE College as a seventeen year old.  So, it was interesting to meet young people who are working together to come up with ideas on public transport, the living wage and school curriculums which come directly from their experiences.

“Emma and Caitlin have made a real mark this year as Doncaster’s Youth Parliament representatives, and I hope that the ideas they have produced will get a good hearing from Doncaster Council’s Children and Families Partnership Board, who have pledged to listen to these ideas from this day.”

The MP discussed with the young people the EU Referendum, the role of an MP and how democracy affects people’s day to day lives.
