CPA Secretary-General visits Jersey College for Girls to deliver a CPA Roadshow

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Secretary-General, Mr Akbar Khan has visited Jersey College for Girls to deliver a CPA Roadshow on Parliament and the Commonwealth. The Secretary-General was visiting Jersey to attend the 46th British Islands and Mediterranean Regional Annual Conference, hosted by the States of Jersey and the CPA Jersey Branch.

The Secretary-General was accompanied on the CPA Roadshow by the Jersey Education Minister, Deputy Rod Bryans and their visit to the school was designed to help to increase young people’s awareness of parliament and democracy. The Secretary-General and the Jersey Education Minister met with pupils at the school and the girls had the opportunity to ask questions. 

CPA Roadshows provide an opportunity for young people to discuss issues of concern about their society and democracy, to meet local Members of Parliament and Parliamentary staff and to find out about the work of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) and the wider Commonwealth.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association connects, develops, promotes and supports Parliamentarians and their staff to identify benchmarks of good governance and the implementation of the enduring values of the Commonwealth.
