THE South Derbyshire MP has spoken about the importance of young people knowing the value of money.

Heather Wheeler posted on her website about people teaching children about money and promoting practical financial education.

She wrote: "If we want our children to grow up free of the burden of debt and having the options open to them that a good credit score allows them to have, we need to make sure they know at least the very basics of managing money.

"It is a simple fact that you cannot spend what you do not have, and this is something that we need to highlight the importance of to our young people."
