Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of a Memorial Fund by Glasgow University in honour of the late Rt hon. Charles Kennedy MP; recalls the enduring connection Charles Kennedy had with the university as a student, President of the University Union, recipient of an honorary doctorate and latterly as Rector from 2008 to 2014; notes that funds raised will support the naming of a state-of-the-art lecture theatre within a new Learning and Teaching Hub as part of the university's expansion on to the Western Infirmary site close to the current Gilmorehill campus; and shares the university's belief that this permanent memorial in a student-centred project is both a fitting and timely way to commemorate Charles Kennedy's remarkable contribution to the university, and his impact on politics and public life in Scotland and the UK as a whole.
