That this House applauds the work undertaken by the not-for-profit organisation Kids Count and associated bodies in raising awareness of issues affecting young people's lives and giving children a voice to determine and influence their own future; notes the continued authority of the publication Knife Crime: Bringing the voice of the street to the House, which draws attention to the serious issue of knife crime among young people; commends the fact that this research draws on grass-roots initiatives and evidence collated over a two-year period; and calls on the Government to consider carefully the matters raised therein.
