To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of changing the timing of National Democracy Week to avoid it coinciding with the school holidays in Scotland; and what steps he is taking to ensure that school children in Scotland are able to take part in that event.

National Democracy Week will take place from 2-8 July 2018 to coincide with the 90th anniversary of equal voting rights for women. It will provide a focal point for democratic engagement amongst all under-registered groups. Materials to support National Democracy Week and democratic engagement as part of the suffrage centenary will be suitable for use across the UK throughout 2018 and beyond, for use with a wide-range of audiences, not only young people.
