Government's Overseas Aid spending under spotlight at
debating competition

The Government's Overseas Aid spending will come under the spotlight at the Epping Forest Schools Parliamentary Debating Competition.

Six schools - Epping St John's, Davenant Foundation School, Chigwell School, Roding Valley High School, King Harold Academy and Debden Park High School - will be taking part in this year's competition organised by Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing.

The Motion to be debated is that "This House believes that the Government's 0.07 per cent ring-fenced budget for overseas aid should be reduced and the money saved should be spent in the UK".

Speaking for the Motion will be the teams from Epping St John's School, Davenant Foundation School and Chigwell School.

Speaking against the Motion will be Roding Valley High School, Debden Park High School and King Harold Academy.

Mrs Laing said: "The competition has traditionally generated great debate among the participating schools, and also from the audience.

"I hope that will again be the case this year and I look forward to listening to the arguments on both sides of the debate from our young public speakers."

The competition is at Epping St John's School on Friday, November 17.
