The Programme stream in particular covered JamboRi 18, World Scout Jamboree 2019 and the Uniform Review.  This provided an opportunity to get a lot of information on the Jamborees and indeed there were many thoughts expressed.  The youth reps came very much into their own when it came to discussing the uniform and what changes, if any, should be considered.
