Heritage Lottery Funding For First World War Centenary Commemorations

EDM number 354 in 2014-15, proposed by Keith Simpson on 15/10/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Cultural heritage, Military operations and National Lottery.

That this House welcomes the Heritage Lottery Fund's (HLF) contribution to the commemorations of the First World War Centenary and recognises that that Fund has already invested over £60 million in projects, large and small, helping communities across the UK to mark the Centenary of the First World War; notes that the HLF will continue to make at least £1 million available per year until 2019 and will provide grants between £3,000 and £10,000 enabling communities and groups around the UK to explore, conserve and share their First World War heritage; and further welcomes this opportunity for people to deepen their understanding of the impact of the conflict and to mark the Centenary over the next four years.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
