A YOUNG man from Winterslow was a guest at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham.

Henry Clark, 17, held a question and answer session with members of the House of Commons alongside Robert Buckland, MP for Swindon South, at the International Conference Centre.

This is the latest charity event in which Henry has supported the National Autistic Society.

Two days earlier Henry attended a seminar and focus group with the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the same charity.

Previously he has delivered a speech to 150 MPs and peers at the House of Commons and has made a speech and hosted a workshop at the Leicester City Football Stadium to more than 100 clinical experts from hospitals all around the country.

His speech-making also has taken him from the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square in the east to a conference in Bristol in the west. And in May, Henry was invited, with his father Barry and brother Hugo, to a reception at 10 Downing Street hosted by Samantha Cameron.
