    What is this?/I'm confused
    Hi there. If you're confused as to what is going on here then you are probably new to this section of TSR. This is a Model House of Commons, a forum where we emulate the structure of the Real Life House of Commons as an excuse to debate politics.

    If you are seeing this and you want to get involved in the debate, please feel free. You do not need to join a party, get approval or join any group to get stuck in right away. If you enjoy it and you do want to join a party then you can do so here. If you have any questions or need any help please message me. I am the current speaker of the house and part of my role involves offering impartial advice to new members so I will always be happy to answer what questions you have. Alternatively, you can read the new members guide to get advice on a wide range of issues.

    Note: Please refrain from making comments about how we spend our free time. It is our free time to spend.


    M470 - Cyber Security Motion, The PoliticalGuyThis House calls upon the Government to further increase funding for cyber security projects around the UK to combat the ever growing problem of Workers shortage and Cyber attacks targeting this great nation.
    Over the next five years, the number of unfilled cyber security jobs will rise to a whopping 1.8 million, a 20% increase from 2015 and this house agrees something must be done.

    These projects include :

    (1) Funding for more after school programming clubs for young children

    (2) More funding for university places and apprenticeships with courses such as CyberSecurity

    (3) Incentives for taking CyberSecurity courses like some that are in place for nursing

    This house also calls for the Government to expand the newly made NCSC with other sites to show acknowledgement of the problem and are willing to support it.

    Aye - Cyber Security is a growing problem and more steps must be taken to prevent cyber crimes.

    Don't think 1 is necessary, the subject is already expanding massively in schools, and I believe it's the Gov't's plan to increase the quality of that.

    2 is an interesting point and one I'm not opposed to.

    The last sentence feels quite vague.

    Aye, but should be expanded into shifting the defence budget towards cybersecurity to accurately reflect the actual threats to the country nowadays.

    Can we get a citation on there in 2015 being one and a half million unfilled cyber security jobs, that seems absurdly high even if we are using global figures. This can also be done in ways far better than those set out in the motion that do not lead to an ever expanding state, namely making IT actually useful in schools, as is already gradually happening.

    Nay, IT ( or computing or whatever they call it in schools now) is already being made more accessible to pupils. All this will do is expand state influence . I can’t see a reason why I should vote Aye on this
