Briefing on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill

Children’s charities including the NSPCC have published a joint briefing on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill calling for parliament to consider the impact of the decision to leave the European Union on the rights, safety and welfare of children and young people. The briefing proposes two amendments for debate in later stages of the Bill including: the protection and promotion of children’s rights; and ensuring that cross-border mechanisms are in place to safeguard children.
