This morning’s closing plenary session panel featured remarks from (right) Samantha Stubbs, UK Member of Youth Parliament, with collegial support from Samantha Coggins (far left in panelist photo). I goofed on getting Ms. Stubbs’ remarks recorded (aaarrrggghhh!) but I did manage to capture the audio from these panelists:

Leslie Reynolds, Executive Director of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS)

9 minutes, 18 seconds

Cllr. Matthew Ellis, Chair of ICELE

11 minutes, 54 seconds

Dylan Jeffrey, DCLG, Symposium Director

5 minutes, 7 seconds
