As fathers throughout Wales prepare to be spoilt by their children on Father’s Day this Sunday, Assembly Member and father of six, Mark Isherwood, has called for a Statement on the Welsh Government’s proposals to celebrate both Father’s and Mother’s days.

?

Speaking in the Assembly Chamber, Mr Isherwood, said: "As we approach Father’s Day on Sunday - a great day for many of us in this Chamber - I call for a statement on the Welsh Government’s proposals to celebrate both Father’s and Mother’s Days, perhaps following the precedent set by the President of the United States of America more than 60 years ago in giving messages to the people of America on these great occasions, in order to celebrate the important role that parents make to the lives of children in Wales."

The Minister for Finance and Leader of the House, Jane Hutt, replied: "The Parenting Strategy looks at opportunities to celebrate the contribution and circumstances of mothers and fathers, and although these days have become somewhat commercialised, I am sure that we will all be giving our cards appropriately."
