Last Friday, Stephen played host to a group of visiting students from the National Citizen Service. Together the group toured the Council Chambers at East Ham Town Hall and discussed how democracy works in the UK.
The tour, co-hosted by Newham Councillor Mariam Dawood, included a question-and-answer session between the students and Stephen.
Speaking after the event, Stephen said: ‘It was a pleasure to meet the students and to answer their questions on politics and democracy. The National Citizen Service is doing a great job in encouraging young people to participate in the processes and institutions that will shape their future and I strongly encourage others to get involved too ’.
