Mr Patrick Laurance And The Family Holiday Association

EDM number 741 in 2007-08, proposed by Gordon Marsden on 21/01/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Incomes and poverty, Leisure and Voluntary organisations.

That this House acknowledges with gratitude the life and work of Patrick Laurance, co-founder with his wife Joan, of the Family Holiday Association, which from humble beginnings in 1975 has grown to provide today over 1,600 disadvantaged families with short breaks to seaside towns in Britain every year; acknowledges also Patrick Laurance's tireless and selfless work as a volunteer for Dignity in Dying and other voluntary organisations; pays tribute to all those who support and assist the Family Holiday Association and its Director, John McDonald, as it advocates further extension of support for disadvantaged families to take holidays; and urges Government and other interested parties to examine favourably such ideas as a lasting tribute to Patrick Laurance's memory.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
