Election 2019: Launceston College Hustings.

Launceston College welcomed Joy Bassett (Labour candidate for Cornwall North) and Danny Chambers (Liberal Democrat candidate for Cornwall North) yesterday afternoon. Students from the sixth form had the opportunity to ask questions and challenge the candidates on their party’s policies as well as their own view around a number of different topics. They discussed issues around climate change and a commitment to achieve zero carbon emissions, transport improvements within Launceston, education and tuition fees, appropriate use of language and trust, living wage and supporting small businesses, BREXIT, and the importance of young people being involved in the political process.

Thank you to the two candidates for coming to this event and to our wonderful audience for some excellent questions.
