Forward Assist debate team Meet Baroness D' Souza in the House of Lords
Members of the Forward Assist Debate Team met with Baroness D' Souza The Lord Speaker at the House Lords last week. The visit was the culmination of the Veterans Debate Project which took place earlier in the year in collaboration with students from Newcastle University Debating Society. The veterans were given a guided tour around the House of Lords and the House of Commons and were able to see debates in progress in both Houses. The veterans were later treated to refreshments on the Terrace of the Strangers Bar as guests of Dave Anderson MP and Oliver Colvile MP both Patrons of Forward Assist.
