Motion text

That this House celebrates the 40th anniversary on 16th October of the election of Harold Wilson as Prime Minister in 1964; remembers with admiration the wide-ranging and ground-breaking legislative programme introduced under his premiership in the determination to create a society of equal opportunity regardless of social origin, race, gender or sexual orientation; acknowledges that he was the only 20th century Prime Minister to have won four general elections; and calls attention to the fact that, despite the intervening years, this legacy continues to underpin our democratic freedoms and to benefit present and future generations.
