Advanced Writing - Test Five

Part One

You must answer this question. Write your answer in 220-260 words in an appropriate style on the separate answer sheet.

1. You attended a debate at the town hall which discussed how new government money for the town should be spent. You have made the notes below:

How should the new government money be spent locally?

  • Reduce local taxes by 1%
  • More sports facilities
  • New books and teachers for schools

Some opinions expressed during the debate:

"We pay too much tax, a tax cut helps everyone!"

"Having a healthier local population is more important than money."

"I don't play sports, what's in this for me?"

Write an essay, discussing two of the proposals in your notes. You should explain which proposal would help the town most, giving reasons in support of your answer.

You may, if you wish, make use of the opinions expressed in the debate, but you should use your own words as far as possible.
