UK Lifts Reservations on The UN Convention on The Rights of The Child (UNCRC)
The UK Government is removing two reservations, relating to immigration and children in custody with adults, on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The Government will now also ratify the Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography by the end of the year.
The news comes ahead of the UK’s appearance at the UN this week (23/24 September) where it will set out its commitment to the Convention and update it on progress on children’s wellbeing
So if lawyers say the UK law does not incorporate the convention the above proves them wrong !
