Political parties have responded to the British Youth Council’s vision for a better country. The manifesto ‘Our Vision, Our Parliament’, which was published last week, outlines the key issues young people across the UK are demanding answers on.
The publication of the manifesto forms part of the British Youth Council’s attempts to get political parties to make firm commitments to young people. Within the manifesto we call on the next Government to address the issues that matter to young people. Young people want better mental health provision for young people and among other issues want an opportunity to influence Brexit negotiations.
The responses we have received have been published to support young people who may be undecided or unaware of each party’s position. Some political parties had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication. In those cases, we have sourced information from their 2017 General Election manifesto.
