Watch Jessica in action in the House of Commons

Jessica Belch

Stockton's Jessica Belch made a rousing speech in the House of Commons today (November 14) as she joined other young people from our region to debate what should become the main campaign for this year's Youth Parliament.

She made an impassioned plea for the campaign to focus on mental health.

The leader of the House of Commons and MP for Richmond, William Hague, also joined the group and said he was delighted to welcome them there.
