Pupils and councillors to debate the EU

Worcester Editorial 11th Jun, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

YOUNGSTERS from a Worcester school will voice their opinion on the future of Britain’s role in the EU in a debate to city councillors.

Students from Bishop Perowne CE College will debate the in/out EU referendum on Wednesday (June 15), with Louis Stephens from the Green Party, Joy Squires from the Labour Party, James Goad from UKIP and Pete McNally from the Trade Union and Socialist Coalition.

Chairing the debate will be Ted Marshall, landlord of the Cap ‘n’ Gown in Worcester, who has been holding hustings every Monday night leading up to the referendum vote on Thursday, June 23.

Debating under the title ‘This house believes a vote for Brexit will be better for Britain’, Year 9 and 10 pupils who are part of the school’s ‘Endeavour Programme’ – which supports and challenges children who are academically gifted – will put their arguments forward.

The event will run from 11am to 1pm.
