Jersey representatives needed for youth parliament

Young adults with an interest in current affairs are being asked to put themselves forward to represent Jersey.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association is holding a Youth Parliament in London in September.

Two people aged 18 to 29 will take part in the forum to discuss ideas, concerns and expectations with other delegates from across the Commonwealth.

The sessions will mirror how Parliament works with debates, question time and committee work.

Constable Len Norman, chairman of the Jersey Commonwealth Parliamentary Association branch, said: "I would encourage any young person with relevant skills and experience to put their name forward.

"In addition I would ask parents to bring this matter to the attention of any local young people who are currently studying or working out of the island."

It is the fourth Commonwealth Youth Parliament and takes place from 6 to 10 September 2011.

Applicants need to send a letter and their CV to Michael de la Haye at the States Greffe no later than Friday 24 June.
