Motion text

That this House welcomes the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC); recognises the achievements made through the UNCRC over the last 20 years in promoting and protecting the rights of children around the world; notes that significant progress has been made in the UK, but agrees with the Government's assessment that `there is more to be done' in order to see children reach their fullest potential; further welcomes the Government's Working Together, Achieving More action plan to address the recommendations of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child; calls for the rights of children to be protected whatever their circumstances and setting, including children in the criminal justice system, children facing discrimination, refugee and asylum-seeking children and children in the media; and further calls on the Government to fulfil its commitments under the UNCRC in order to achieve its ambition to make the UK the best place for all children and young people to live.
