EDM number 1464 in 2017-19, proposed by Stephen Gethins on 27/06/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Religion and faith communities.

That this House notes that 5 July 2018 will mark the 700th anniversary of the consecration of St Andrews Cathedral that took place after 150 years of construction; considers the important role that the Cathedral has played in Scotland's history with the consecration coming just four years after the battle of Bannockburn and the Cathedral continuing to play an important role until its destruction during the Reformation; welcomes the programme of events that are taking place to mark the 700th anniversary in St Andrews; encourages visitors to come and visit St Andrews and the cathedral during this historic year; and further welcomes the important role that churches in St Andrews and indeed all faith groups continue to play in local communities.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
