The opportunity has arisen this Friday 22nd April for interested students to meet Rachel Reeves, MP for Leeds West and former Shadow Pensions Minister, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury and most recently Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary.
Location: Plaza outside Student Union
Date: 22 April
It won’t be a formal meeting with a speech etc, this is just a chance for students to come and meet her and have a chat with her about young people and politics. It should be a really interesting opportunity for your students to have access to a high profile politician, and I know Rachel is keen to speak to them about the EU Referendum.
The referendum will have a huge bearing on the lives of young people but according to surveys far fewer younger people are expected to vote.
Students would be very welcome to just turn up, but I would be grateful if they could drop me a quick email registering their interest (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can keep tabs on the numbers.
Parliamentary Assistant to Barry Sheerman MP
