Vso And Airport Tax

EDM number 1393 in 1993-94, proposed by Mike Gapes on 27/06/1994.

That this House recognises the important work being done by Voluntary Service Overseas; applauds the fact that 1,700 VSO volunteers are currently working in developing countries worldwide alongside local people, to provide development assistance in the form of their own skills, expertise and enthusiasm; welcomes VSO week being held throughout Britain from 4th July to 10th July; regrets that the new airport tax places an additional burden upon those agencies such as VSO, which send volunteers overseas and is, therefore, in part a tax on overseas aid; and calls for the revenue from the new airport tax to be used in part to provide additional funding for volunteer sending agencies such as VSO, and to increase Britain's overseas aid budget.

This motion has been signed by a total of 77 MPs.
