Should be up the the age of 18 as education is compulsory until 18 now.
also is this 2018 real time? If so I think this is ileagal as is stifles a future government which we aren't allowed to do right:erm: and they could just repeal this law which makes this a pretty pointless bill.

Nay.

It is not the place of a party to bind the treasury in these difficult times.

Nay, I appreciate the idea although it seems nonsensical for it be a bill.

Absolutely pointless given the sovereignty of Parliament.

No. I'd prefer this to come from the Chancellor (as the person responsible for finances on behalf of the government), than a party.

Nay. This isn't really enforceable, and given the necessity of flexibility when it comes to dealing with government finances, this should remain under the treasury's responsibility.

Incredibly naive to further protect A+Es and ambulance services while Social Care is still being sliced, easier relief could be provided by investment there. Although I do approve of protecting it.

Shouldn't there be a review to determine "minimal spending requirements" first?

Surprised to see UKIP promote such a pro-spending bill - a shift to the left, perhaps?

I'll probably have to vote against it for the reason Rakas outlined, that although I broadly support the bill's sentiment I don't think binding future governments is a great idea.

It all reminds me of Paddy's days in charge of them (a bit before me, i came afterwards so saw the after effects though). It was a time when Tory+Libers ruled and where even the Liberals and Ukip were viewed as commies.

I would love to see it from the chancellor myself, but the government seem to be lacking this term in economic legislation

Nay - you can't bind Parliament so this Bill is unfortunately about as useful as a chocolate teapot: it might look yummy but good luck getting it to actually do what it's supposed to! I do appreciate the sentiment though
