Dame Patsy spoke at and presented the prizes at the New Zealand School's Debating Championships Grand Final at Parliament today.

Wellington Black and Auckland Blue were the finalists and the moot was "That this house will only allow female lawmakers to vote on women's health issues." 

It was a close debate and Wellington Black were judged the winners by 3-2.

Congratulations to everyone who competed over the weekend.
