That this House expresses deep regret regarding the UK Government’s decision to withdraw from the Erasmus+ scheme; recognises the importance of Erasmus+ to the many thousands of students and young people who have benefited from the opportunity to live, study and work abroad; notes that EU membership is not a requirement of participation in Erasmus+; welcomes the decision of the Irish Government to fund Erasmus+ grants for Northern Irish students; notes that the UK Government’s Turing scheme will not replicate many aspects of the Erasmus+ scheme such as youth work, adult education, sport, culture and vocational training; and urges the Government to reverse its decision on participation in Erasmus+.
