Youth Parliament Sugar Tax Bill Passed

Youth Parliament Sugar Tax Bill Passed
Monday, 20 August 2018

Congratulations to our Newhaven College Youth Parliament Team 2018. Tara Swan, Ysabel Kershaw, Declan Chisholm, Indigo Donahoo, Ellie Pearce and Adam Dodson recently presented their Sugar Taxation and Warning Labels Bill in Parliament.

After rigorous debate the Bill was unanimously passed and has now been forwarded to the Health Minister, Jill Hennessy MP, for her consideration - a wonderful achievement!

The students were thrilled with the opportunity to work in Parliament and enjoy first hand experience of our democratic system in action.

The team will now report back to the Bass Coast Shire Council on 29 August.
