Youth Parliament motivates another SPC MP?
Ben spent the two day event during the holidays at Parliament with students from all over the country. Young people from across Aotearoa New Zealand took centre stage in the capital as Youth members of Parliament (MPs), Youth Press Gallery members, and the Youth Clerk. It was an amazing experience meeting with the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the Governor General Dame Cindy Kiro and other members of parliament.
Ben's legislative debate speech was about the Minimum Wage (Starting Out Wage Abolition) Amendment Bill. You can watch Ben’s speech in the general debate in chambers here.
