Cat Smith responds to George Osborne in support of votes at 16

Cat Smith MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Voter Engagement and Youth Affairs, responding to comments made by George Osborne today in support of votes at 16, said:

“Votes at 16 is the right thing to do and George Osborne has admitted that an increasing number of Tory MPs know it.

“The only thing stopping them doing the right thing is their own narrow political interests. For once, the Tories should stop thinking of themselves, do the right thing and give young people the vote.

“Labour is committed to giving young people a voice in the future of their country.”
