Supporting The Third Age Trust (University Of The Third Age)

EDM number 96 in 1991-92, proposed by Simon Coombs on 07/11/1991.

That this House recognises and applauds the work of the Third Age Trust nationally in encouraging the development of local Universities of the Third Age (U3As); marks their role in the advancement of education, and in particular the education of middle-aged and older people who are not in full-time gainful employment; acknowledges the value of participation in self-help study groups in providing opportunities for stimulation, personal achievement and fulfilment among this sector of the population; welcomes the information that there are now more than 150 local Universities of the Third Age distributed throughout the United Kingdom with over 17,500 individual members; and warmly encourages the development and continued growth of these institutions.

This motion has been signed by a total of 57 MPs.
