Letham Kids Community Parliament

EDM number 715 in 2017-19, proposed by Stephen Gethins on 19/12/2017.
Categorised under the topic of Schools.

That this House congratulates Letham Primary School and Monimal Community Council on establishing the Letham Kids Community Parliament which held its inaugural meeting on 29 November 2017; notes that pupils from primaries four to seven have been learning about democracy and have established this new body as part of their social enterprise project which has also included talks from Members of Monimal Community Council; further notes that the Parliament's first agenda included speeding, potholes and local floral displays and included a vote on a new roundabout for the local play park with the winning entry being decided upon in part due to its wheelchair accessibility; commends all those involved in this project; and wishes them well as their Parliament is reconvened in spring 2018.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
