Motion text

That this House notes with concern the findings of studies carried out by Dr David Thomson of City University, Department of Optometry and Visual Science, London which show that one in five school children could have an undetected sight problem; believes that vision screening is important so that children can be identified who have unsuspected remediable conditions and treatment can be offered before educational and social progress is affected; joins the RNIB in calling on parents to book a free sight test for their child; and further calls upon the Government to introduce universal and high quality screening for children when they enter primary school and again on entry to secondary school.
