YE mentioned in the Chamber of the House of Commons:


30th April 2019
Alex Chalk MP (Cheltenham, Conservative)
House of Commons Debate on climate change

If we are to apply the brakes on what could easily become the runaway train of climate change, we have to reduce emissions drastically, and do so as soon as feasibly possible. Our young people realise that, as I know from speaking to them in Cheltenham and beyond. Only last week, I met Balcarras students who have set up Sustain, a Young Enterprise team promoting environmental education. Their energy and sense of mission is inspiring and uplifting.”


16th April 2019
Melanie Onn MP (Great Grimsby, Labour)
House of Commons (Business Operations)

Will the leader join me in congratulating Grimsby Institute level 3 Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Group for their strong performance at the UK final of Young Enterprise competition held in London yesterday. Our colleges play a critical role in delivering skills and qualifications and are at the fore front of biggest reform to technical education in a generation. When will we get a statement committing to increasing the base rate funding for 16 -19 year olds to meet the challenges that this place puts on them.”


Leader of the House, Andrea Leadsom MP: “I join the lady in congratulating Grimsby Institute for excellence performance particularly in the area of Entrepreneurship. I encourage her to seek a Westminster Hall or an adjournment debate on a review of funding.”


21st May 2019
Seema Malhotra MP (Feltham and Heston, Labour)
House of Commons Debate on financial exclusion

“The question is how we are going to respond to the drivers of such changes, including new technologies, lifestyles and uneven economic progress, and the consequences of the increasing cost of our nation’s wholesale cash infrastructure, alongside the need for better financial education and financial inclusion. I thank the hon. Member for Solihull (Julian Knight) for being here and for his work on the all-party parliamentary group on financial education for young people.
