Laine was a Member of the first Welsh Youth Parliament from 2018 to 2021.

The following was his candidate statement for election to the first Welsh Youth Parliament:

My Key Issues are:

  • Free public transport for students
  • Healthy eating programmes in schools
  • Increased funding for wildlife trusts

I am Laine Woolcock and I am a life-long resident of the Ogmore constituency. Growing up in Ogmore, I have an acute awareness and appreciation of the issues that the younger generation of our valley hold dear. I want to represent Ogmore because I am a staunch believer in the equal representation of young people and I am steadfast in my determination to bring about real, progressive change for our younger generation. I possess an inherent passion for public service and, as a member of the Welsh Youth Parliament, I will prioritize the issues that our younger generation cares deeply about. That is why I have chosen to make public transport, education and the environment the focal point of my candidacy and future work in the parliament.

To ensure that my constituents' views are represented fairly, I will hold events; wherein they can share their views and ideas regarding contemporary issues. I will then make it my prerogative to represent these views in the parliament. I believe that we can achieve great things when we listen to others and this is a skill that I believe will make me a good representative for young people, if I am fortunately elected.
