Hyslop Supports Young Peoples’ Entitlement to Share Views
Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop is supporting the Bill to give every 16 and 17 year old in West Lothian the right to have their say in the Scottish Referendum next year.
“Next Year’s referendum is one of the most important decisions to face the Scottish people in recent times and I am delighted that a bill has been introduced to allow 16 and 17 year olds the chance to have their say.
“In Scotland you can join the army, have a full time job, get married and have children at just 16 years old, our young people absolutely deserve the right to say how the future of their country should be run.
“Whatever views you may have on the issue, it is important that you use your vote and have your say in marking Scotland’s history.”
