Motion text

That this House notes the July 2005 report from the Council of Europe Committee of Social Rights, monitoring conformity with the European Social Charter, which finds the UK in breach of human rights obligations by failing to afford children the same protection under the law on assault that adults take for granted; and believes that this modernising and progressive reform proposal is a fundamental issue of equality and human rights that has been trivialised for too long.
