A BUDDING politician from Barnsley is taking part in the largest consultation of young people in the country.

Anton Dobson, an elected member of the UK Youth Parliament, will be running the campaign - dubbed 'Make Your Mark' - in Barnsley.

Ten topics will be available to choose from on the initial ballot, with the five most popular issues going on to be discussed in the House of Commons on November 14.

In last year's ballot, almost 500,000 young people were surveyed, but this year a target of one million has been set.

Anton said: "It's seriously important as local members of the UK Youth Parliament need your help in order to change things for the better in your area.

"I'm extremely passionate about Make Your Mark as it's engaging young people and empowering their voice."
