Votes At 16 In The Isle Of Man

EDM number 1687 in 2005-06, proposed by Stephen Williams on 27/02/2006.

That this House commends the decision by the House of Keys to reduce the voting age from 18 to 16 years in the Isle of Man; believes that this will help engage the island's young adult population with democracy and the political process; notes that in 1881 the Isle of Man became the first place in the world to give women the vote in a parliamentary election; and calls on the Government, in line with the recent recommendation made in the Power Inquiry report, once again to follow the Isle of Man's lead with a progressive extension of the electoral franchise to include 16 and 17 year olds.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
