I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to revise the law relating to non-fatal offences against the person by imposing specific terms of imprisonment on persons found guilty of assaulting members of the emergency services whilst on duty.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.
