Motion text

That this House notes that a number of cases brought before the Brescia Court of Appeal in Italy by British lecturers working in that country have been extinguished through Italy's Gelmini law; understands that these cases relate to the non-fulfilment of employment contracts; recognises that the Gelmini law provides for decisions taken in Italian courts to be overturned and dismissed without evidence having been heard; acknowledges that this law has led to Fife resident Robert Coates having a decision taken in relation to the non-fulfilment of his employment contract with the University of Brescia overturned and dismissed without any grounds for redress; and calls on the UK and Italian governments to work closely together to bring this matter to a prompt and satisfactory resolution for all British lecturers working in Italy who have been affected.
