Publication Of John Clare's Poetry

EDM number 1191 in 2009-10, proposed by Barry Sheerman on 25/03/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Arts.

That this House recognises that this year marks the 190th anniversary of the publication of John Clare's first volume of poems; notes that the dispute over the copyright issues relating to John Clare's published and unpublished work still restricts access to the full extent of Clare's genius; and calls for the issues surrounding this to be resolved rapidly in order to ensure that the work of this pre-eminent poet of the natural world be made even more widely accessible.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
