A SUCCESSFUL Q&A event called Havering Asks was held at Havering College, at which around 150 young people had the chance to debate on the issues which matter to them.
The student question and answer session was staged by Havering Council, in partnership with the College, as part of their local democracy work with young people.
BBC World Service broadcaster Fred Dove chaired the debate for the second year running.
College students and pupils from secondary schools across Havering and Brentwood were invited to question the panel on issues which matter to them. Topics raised included migration, homosexuality and Britain’s foreign policy, the gap between rich and poor, animal testing and whether Arts subjects limit careers.”
