Vale of Glamorgan MP, Alun Cairns, met with the new Vale of Glamorgan Youth Cabinet during their first meeting after being elected in April by the Vale Youth Forum.
Niclas Want has recently been elected as Youth Mayor alongside Daley Chapman, who will be the Deputy Youth Mayor, as they both go into their second term of being members of the Youth Cabinet.
The Youth Cabinet gives young people an opportunity to express their views and represent their opinions to the decision makers within the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
Local MP, Alun Cairns, said
”It is brilliant to see so many young people so involved and interested in politics.
“The Youth Cabinet offers young people an opportunity to develop an understanding of politics and the process of how our Council, Assembly and Parliament works, an opportunity they would not otherwise have.
“I was asked some tough questions, as expected, but it was great to be challenged by some of my younger constituents”.
