SOUTH Lakes MP Tim Farron has joined Green MP Caroline Lucas to propose a bill to improve citizenship classes in schools.

The 'Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education’ Bill asks for the topic to be a statutory requirement for all state schools.

“This really is a major issue that politicians have ducked for too long,” said Mr Farron.

“I hope with this bill, we can make these classes better and break the taboo of lots of issues like domestic violence, mental health and sexual health.”
