Ending violence against children

Volume 598: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2015

I am delighted and indebted to Minehead Middle School in my constituency for this petition. It has collected more than 200 postcards.

The petition states:

The petition of residents of the UK,

Declares that the petitioners support Unicef’s campaign to end violence against children; further that the petitioners note that not all children have the opportunity to speak and therefore need people to speak for them; and further that Minehead Middle School recently held a campaign day on this subject and 200 pupils signed postcards calling for action. The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support Unicef’s campaign and to commit to working to end violence against children now.

And the petitioners remain, etc. [P001531]
