  What makes a good children's commissioner?
Updated 08 September 2003, 19.10

Children in England are finally going to have their voices heard and their rights protected.

They're getting their own Children's Commissioner to represent them in government.

Do you like the idea?

What type of person should the new commissioner be?

And what sort of things should they deal with?
