Votes for 16 year olds and better political education in high school were offered as ideas to improve young people participation.

Mark said: “The quality of the debate was higher than that sometimes in the House of Commons! On a serious note we as politicians must do everything we can to support young people in our community and Preston youth council is a great voice for young people in Preston.”
