Motion text

That this House expresses its dismay at the wide range of toys and computer games which are based on lethal weapons and violent imagery; believes that, in part, the growth of violence in our society has its roots in the brutalising of our children from an early age by war toys and games; calls upon Her Majesty's Government to set up an inquiry to investigate what links exist between war toys, games and violent behaviour; and reminds parents that the season of peace and goodwill is ill-served by the giving of war toys to children.
