Motion text

That this House recognises the benefits of the Youth Mobility Scheme which allows young people to live, work and study in the UK for up to 24 months; notes the importance of that scheme to the development of young people’s understanding of different countries and cultures; further notes that scheme stimulates investment in tourist activities and language schools; recognises that scheme further supports the economy by providing a route for prospective au pairs, who provide an affordable and flexible childcare solution, to come to the UK from other countries and vice versa; acknowledges that scheme is limited in scope in terms of countries that can take part and number of places available; laments that EU countries are not included in the scheme; and urges the Government to expand the scope of the Youth Mobility Scheme in recognition of the benefits it delivers to young people.
