Royal Society of Biology's seventh 'Voice of the Future' event

6 March 2018

The Science and Technology Committee hosts the Royal Society of Biology's seventh 'Voice of the Future' event on Tuesday 13 March 2018.

This event is held in the Boothroyd Room. Unlike the usual Committee meetings the tables are turned - and the committee seats will be occupied by young people and the MPs, Minister, Shadow Minister and Government's Chief Scientific Adviser Chris Whitty will sit in the witness seats ready to answer questions.

The Science and Technology Committee is taking a selection of questions from Twitter if directed at the event's official hashtag #VOF2018.

09:30   Welcome by Rt Hon John Bercow MP - Speaker of the House of Commons 

09:40   Sam Gyimah MP - Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation

10:10   Chi Onwurah MP - Shadow Minister for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
