Ten Minute Rule Bill

On 29 March 2011, Tory MP Charlie Elphicke proposed a bill aiming to require courts and local authorities to take into account the rights of a child to grow up seeing both parents when determining custody arrangements.
The bill would make it an offence for a relevant body to disregard this presumption.
Mr Elphicke argues children who see both parents have better education and employment prospects in later life.

Comment by #wco: Let us all hope this is given the time to have a proper, thorough and objective debate leading to introduction of this bill.

Well done Charlie !
