Children’s Rights

Children’s Rights

Dear XXX

Thank you for coming into the constituency office and for your letter regarding the rights of children around the world. You raised numerous important points that highlight some of the issues that continue to challenge the UK as well as the international community. 

The protection of children and their rights is a matter of great importance to me. Like you mentioned, it does not seem fair that some people have lots of money and opportunities while others are left without their basic human needs being met. In a speech, UK Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said "how a society treats its most vulnerable is always the measure of its humanity”. It only seems fair that as one of the world’s wealthiest nations, we should help more refugees as well. 

As your MP, I work closely with campaigns that promote human rights and the protection of the most vulnerable people. It is because of so much inequality that we must continue to promote and use systems that help people when they need it, which includes the NHS. 

You also mention your concern over the way the parents and schools control children. I think this is an interesting point and it certainly should be considered. It is key that schools and parents should seek the most recent and scientifically-supported information to provide the best care for children.

I am grateful for your letter and excited to see your interest in human rights. It is reassuring to see young people, such as yourself, becoming passionate about challenging the way the world treats people.  

Kind regards,
