§ Mr. David Nicholson
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on her Department's proposed booklet, "Bringing Up Children"; what distribution is intended; at what expense; and for what purposes.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
I have been asked to reply.
The updated parents charter will be distributed to every household in England at an estimated cost of £630,000. It will not be a guide for parents on bringing up children; rather it will explain how parents' rights have been strengthened, and choice extended, since the publication of the first parents charter in 1991.
