First Smashing Debate

The first debate of the semester was a smashing success! Thank you to all who came along — freshers, post-grad students, former members, new members, people from all across Queen’s and Belfast. We were left with standing room only and saw many people participating in the debate with interventions, points from the floor, and incisive questions.

After excellent speeches from Emily Walker, Ciaran Gallagher, Andrew Carruthers (proposition) and Marie-Louise Synnott, Naomh Gibson, Tyler McNally (opposition), members of the house marginally voted to NOT legalise brothels.

Make sure to come to next week’s debate entitled “This House Believes Northern Ireland is Failing Young People” — 7 pm in the Senate Room.
