Closed petition Fund defibrillators and emergency first aid training for all schools

I believe that every school in this country should have at least 1 defibrillator and a number of staff who are sufficiently trained to use it as well as CPR. The Government should provide funding for this to ensure our children are better protected in the future.

More details

There are too many cases where a lack of first aid skills or access to emergency equipment such as defibrillators can put the lives of children at risk. Providing funding for defibrillators and emergency first aid training for all schools should help save lives.

MPs debate public access to defibrillators

On Tuesday 4 July, Abena Oppong-Asare MP led a Westminster Hall debate in Parliament on public access to defibrillators.

During the debate MPs discussed access to and awareness of publicly available defibrillators. They also discussed the VAT arrangements for defibrillators.

What are Westminster Hall debates?

Westminster Hall is the second Chamber of the House of Commons.

Westminster Hall debates give MPs an opportunity to raise local or national issues and receive a response from a government minister. Any MP can take part in a Westminster Hall debate.

Debates in Westminster Hall take place on ‘general debate' motions expressed in neutral terms. These motions are worded ‘That this House has considered [a specific matter]'.
