Motion text

That this House notes that Early Day Motion 128 `Parenting Time Presumption' has now been signed by 340 hon. Members of all political parties representing more than half of all hon. Members in the House; further notes that the Motion urges that separated parents should each have a legal presumption of contact with their children unless it compromises the safety of the child, but that the Government has so far declined to make these changes to the Children and Adoption Bill; calls on the Government to adopt the amendments which have been tabled for report stage of the Bill to achieve this end as supported by the majority of hon. Members; looks forward to all those hon. Members who have added their names to the Motion being present at report stage to add their votes of support; and, given the extraordinary level of interest in this subject, calls for a debate to be scheduled as soon as possible in Government time on the whole issue of shared parental responsibility and better parenting.
