‘A Fair Start for Every Child’

Borders MP Michael Moore hosted the launch of Save the Children’s 2015 manifesto ‘A Fair Start for Every Child’ in Parliament last week.

It calls for a Government commitment to ensure all children read well by the age of 11; and improved access to affordable childcare.

Mr Moore said: “Our teachers do an excellent job in encouraging children to read and I am backing this goal to see all children gain this valuable life skill. Better access to affordable childcare is another key issue here and from autumn parents will be able to save up to £1,200 per child on childcare.”
