Birmingham And The Uk's Capital Of Culture

EDM number 1182 in 2009-10, proposed by Sion Simon on 24/03/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Arts and Cultural heritage.

That this House notes that Birmingham - city of Tolkien and Sir Simon Rattle, the Birmingham Royal Ballet and UB40 - is and always has been a great city of culture; and believes that it should be recognised as such when the UK's first official City of Culture is announced later this year.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
