Motion text

That this House believes that the Government should play a leading role at the UN summit in September 2015 and strongly urge its international colleagues to adopt a specific target to reduce the level of violence against children as part of the new Sustainable Development Goals; notes that UNICEF has highlighted that nearly two-thirds of homicides around the world involve the killing of people under the age of 19; further notes that 60 per cent of the world's children continue to experience physical punishment; and urges the Government to make this one of its key priorities, along with climate change, education and healthcare to leave a better world for the next generation.
