Despite offering no direct legislation it does, as a motion, fulfill it's purpose in granting a mandate to a future bill producer discussing these topics as they will have approval of the house through this motion.
For the reasons outlined in the House reading, I will be voting against - there are greater priorities that ought to be tackled first, and not simply tackling by arbitrary 'greater investment' - especially when the issue is at least partially down to active decisions taken by parents.
I urge MPs when voting to consider what this motion does. It gives government freedom over how to tackle this problem (quite generations for motions) and whilst an increase in investment is called for the government is not bound to follow this specifically should the motion pass. This motion simply allows the house to agree over the importance of literacy in our society.
In the debate on this item members of the government put the blame on children for their own lack of education, I see this as irresponsible rhetoric from a government afraid to do anything meaningful for the good of everyone. Give this motion an aye to hopefully see that change.
