That this House congratulates the Poets @ War project on its receipt of a funding award of £10,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund; understands that the project will use drama and poetry as an educational tool to teach young people about the impact of the First World War on Inverclyde; recognises the role of Greenock's McLean Museum in facilitating First World War centenary events; and believes that the use of performing arts and literature is an effective and imaginative way of ensuring that the sacrifices of the First World War are not forgotten.
