Commissioner on the cards

After years of campaigning by children’s charities and
children’s rights groups the government is proposing to
establish a children’s commissioner for England.

The green paper says the commissioner would act as a
children’s champion advising government but also engaging
with organisations whose decisions and actions affect children such
as businesses and media. He or she would report to parliament
annually. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland already have a
children’s commissioner office.
