Bob Stewart MP spoke to the young people about their community campaigns.

Archant

More than 50 young people paid a visit to the House of Commons as part of a Government funded initiative.

On July 9, 59 students aged 15 to 17 from Bromley met Bob Stewart, MP for Beckenham.

They were given a tour of the Houses of Parliament, told about the building’s history and got the chance to sit in the House of Commons and hear live topics being discussed.

The visit formed part of The National Citizen Service (NCS) with The Challenge, a scheme aiming to bring young people from different backgrounds together to teach them about how to contribute to their communities.

As part of the programme, young people also develop a campaign of their choice.

Mr Stewart said: “The National Citizen Service is a fabulous programme and I can see from the reaction of the young people that they thoroughly enjoy it.”
