Candidates have until November 14 to nominate themselves and must submit details of 10 young people aged 11-19 years old living or studying in Redbridge who support their application.

To nominate yourself you must be aged between 12 to 17 on March 31 2015.

A Redbridge Council spokesman said: “This is your chance to be part of the UK Youth Parliament and debate in the House of Commons as well as taking an active part in local democracy in Redbridge.”
