Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Minutes of Evidence

Examination of Witnesses (Questions 380-382)


1 APRIL 2008

  Q380  Paul Farrelly: I have no idea. I will ask all the people who have welcomed the report but I thought you might have a figure in mind.

  Dr Byron: Lots of money. Enough money to target effectively and enough money to be creative around how that targeting is done. This should be a financial priority in terms of resourcing a campaign to enable parents, teachers, adults grandparents who do a lot of childcare as well, and schools, to feel empowered to enable children to take responsibility for their own behaviour, and that will require proper resourcing.

  Q381  Paul Farrelly: So warm welcomes are fine but the Government has got to put its money where its mouth is?

  Dr Byron: Absolutely right.

  Q382  Chairman: Can I thank you very much and can I on behalf of the Committee wish you a very enjoyable holiday, which is thoroughly deserved!

  Dr Byron: Thank you very much.
