A place to speak out

11th November 2005 at 00:00
The Hansard Society's new website is designed by young people and aims to make politics fun for their peers. The Being Heard site explains how laws affect young people, and enables them to discuss their views with others and take part in polls about topical subjects. Users can contact MPs and other elected officials, journalists and even members of the Royal Family, giving them the chance to question the decision-makers.

In the Response Room, politicians ask students their opinions on topics, giving young people the chance to answer the politician's query with their own tricky questions.
