    Annette Brooke, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole and Parliamentary Champion for Save the Children yesterday spoke in a debate she had called on the achievement gap in reading between poorer children and their better off peers.

    At the start of the debate Annette pointed out that in the UK today, one in every four children leaves primary school without being able to read well, meaning 130,000 children each year start secondary school already behind, with consequences for their later life chances. Of those children, a disproportionately large number are from disadvantaged backgrounds. Of children on free school meals, the proportion leaving primary school who do not read well rises to 40%.

    Annette Brooke, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole has today joined Animal Defenders International (ADI), the organisation spearheading the campaign to end the use of wild animals in circuses in Britain, to back a new bill introduced to ban such acts.

    Parliament voted unanimously in favour of a ban in 2011, and the Government first announced that it would take action on this issue in March 2012. A delay in bringing in a ban has seen the number of wild animal acts increase and the return of big cats to Britain. This bill, which is identical to the one published by the Government last year and scrutinised by MPs, would ban wild animal acts by the end of 2015.
