Liz launches Social Media consultation with local students

Today I visited Mowmacre Primary School to launch a consultation with local students to learn about their experiences with social media.

As a member of the Science and Technology Committee we’ll be looking in more detail about the impact of social media on young people’s physical and mental health.

Social Media plays such an important part in young people lives. I want to make sure the views and voices of young people here in Leicester West are heard loud and clear on this very important issue.

I really enjoyed listening to the views of the children at Mowmacre Primary school and over the coming weeks I’ll be visiting more schools to learn more from local children.

All their views will then be fed back into the Science and Technology Committee’s inquiry before their report is released at the end of the year.
