Motion text

That this House recognises that the 400th anniversary of the Union of the Crowns will occur in 2003, an event in which the King of Scotland, James VI, acceded to the English throne and became the monarch of Britain; notes that this ultimately led to the Union of two of the Parliaments in 1707 and over 250 years of peace between the ancient nations of Britain and brought increased prosperity and widened opportunities for Scots and English alike in the United Kingdom and abroad; and considers that the Government and other public bodies should bring forward a programme of events to mark this important date in United Kingdom history.
