UK Parliament Week 2019

Gresham’s started its week-long participation in UK Parliament Week 2019 with a debate in the UK parliamentary style delivered to a packed House on Monday evening. The Government motion to make the smacking of children a criminal offence in England and Wales was very narrowly defeated by the Opposition after a heated hour-long debate and a nail-biting division of the House. The Government and Opposition proudly wore their ‘It starts with you!’ wristbands.
