Robert Backs Reading Campaign on World Book Day

Speaking in Parliament, Robert said: "On World Book Day, I'm supporting World Book Day UK's Reading Revolution campaign, which aims to encourage parents and carers to read to their children for ten minutes a day, every day. With two young children of my own I know how valuable it is to share in the joy of stories - and reading has an enormous benefit on a child’s literacy levels.

"Let's bring back reading for pleasure as a national pastime and get the nation’s children reading!"
