Barbara hosted the first of a series 'Just Listening' exercises in her constituency office.
Six pupils from local High Schools were invited to participate in the discussion on the following topics:
What single thing would most improve your quality of life and your community’s quality of life by 2010, and is this Government’s job?
What does fairness mean to you and how could Britain become a fairer society?
What can we all do to make politics more honest, more relevant and more effective?
What does Britishness mean to you and what can we do to make it more of a reality to unify society?
'Just Listening' is a project organised by the Fabian Society that will help influence and develop policy for the forthcoming term of government.
