Today nine college and school pupils began their work as Members of Youth Parliament (MYP).

North West Norfolk MYP is Jessica Barnard, 16, from King Edward VII High School.

Manifesto: “Most young people are still in full-time education until age 18 therefore it is unfair to ask them to pay the same price a working adult would. Child rates should be increased up to age 18 for things such as bus/train travel, and entertainment such as cinema tickets and gym memberships. I would also do my best to spread the word and encourage other people to speak out about the unfair attitude the government are taking towards the youth. I would particularly like to have a chance to approach Norfolk County Council about their plans to build an incinerator in King’s Lynn, ignoring the democratic society we believe in.”
