Kellen H Youth MP for Redcar and Cleveland (ex LJS pupil) has been chosen as the North East Debate Lead for this year’s Annual sitting in Parliament. He was chosen by ballot by his fellow North East MYPs.

He will be given a topic to debate (he doesn’t know the topic or if he is debating for or against) and will be filmed for  Parliament live on the 9th November.  Depending on the issue and/or how his speech goes, he could be on worldwide news. 

Well done and Good Luck Kellen!
