The motion, which was passed at a council meeting on Thursday night, could mean a shorter break for more than 50,000 children.

Parents say an extra week would allow them to book cheaper holidays.

Things won't move forward as quickly as I'd have hoped, but I look forward to the issue being given consideration, and I hope progress can be made.

– Cllr Ed Bridges, Cardiff Council

The idea will now be explored by a council committee.
