Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to recognise that many village and community halls are facing closure as a result of the increasing pressure being placed on employees and volunteers to implement health and safety regulations; requests that the effect of such regulations on village and community halls should be reviewed bearing in mind that halls are frequently run by volunteers with limited time and resources; furthermore recognises that difficulties with implementation have been intensified as a result of the lack of funding that is currently available to cover capital costs such as building maintenance; further notes the importance of village and community halls to the life of local people in providing support and opportunities for young and old; and requests that urgent consideration be given to this issue, and also to the underlying problem of the lack of available funding for village halls and community centres.
