Hi there
We've moved this to our petitions noticeboard.

No I won't. It is an absolutely stupid idea and would damage many children's love of reading.

I'm going to sign ...I think not exactly age restrictions...just more clear indication of content suitability ...
I say this after DD then my 8 read a Jaqueline Wilson with a scene in it where Magda the Slagda thinks she is going to be raped - I was oblivious to the fact that JW writes books for older readers...
At 12 she bought some of the 'Life of Riley' books - part of a 'buy 3 for the price of 2 on Kid's books' offer in WH Smiths....did say not suitable for younger readers or similar - flipping through the main character gets asked to buy the morning after pill for someone and wishes her parents were cooler and talked about blow jobs at the dinner table...
