“The Time for Votes at 16 is Now” – Danielle Rowley MP

Danielle Rowley MP has declared that the time for Votes at 16 is now in a Westminster Hall debate.

Ms. Rowley, who is chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Votes at 16, spoke of the young people taking part in the climate strikes and praised them for being “informed [and] articulate”.

Danielle Rowley MP said: “I am so encouraged to see how engaged young people are with politics in Midlothian. 

“From national issues such as climate change, holding a musical protest outside the council, to the questions and comments I hear when I visit schools and colleges, all shows the deep interest Midlothian’s young people care about their communities and the world around them.

“It is clear to me that the time for votes at 16 is now.”
