A CHILD IS BORN




SALUS MUNDI *



I saw a stable, low and very bare,



A little child in a manger.



The oxen knew him, had Him in their care,



To men He was a stranger.



The safety of the world was lying there,



And the world's danger.




Mary Coleridge




(* safety of the world)

A CHILD IS BORN

What law defines the age of a child in the UK?

There is no single law that defines the age of a child across the UK. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified by the UK government in 1991, states that a child “means every human being below the age of eighteen years unless, under the law applicable to the child, majority is attained earlier.” (Article 1, Convention on the Rights of the Child, 1989)
