Child Soldiering

EDM number 856 in 2010-12, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 19/10/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces, Children and families and Military operations.

That this House notes the ongoing international abuse scandal whereby child soldiers are used in the most horrific and brutal causes; commends the work being done by many charitable bodies, churches and others, including a recent campaign by students in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, to expose the continuing outrage of using thousands of young children as pawns in disputes which continue in many developing countries; and calls on the Government to exert pressure in every available international forum to ensure these practices are stopped as soon as possible.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
