Chair Of Palaeography At King's College London

EDM number 1179 in 2009-10, proposed by Tim Boswell on 24/03/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Adult education.

That this House notes the proposal by the Executive of Kings College London as part of its budget review process to abolish the Chair of Palaeography, the only one of its kind in the United Kingdom; further notes the fundamental importance of palaeography to a broad and interdisciplinary scholarly community; considers that without the development of palaeographic skills, millions of documents would be rendered inaccessible, thus depriving the nation of its full historical legacy; and therefore urges Kings College London to consider very carefully any proposals in respect to this prestigious and important Chair.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
