Andrew George MP, one of the chairs of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Civil Society and Volunteering, has tabled an early day motion in Parliament welcoming Compact Week, and expressing support for the Compact.
Early day motions give MPs the opportunity to show support for particular issues and causes, and can be signed by all parties.
EDM 648 states:
“That this House welcomes Compact Week which takes place from 5 to 9 November 2012; recognises the important contribution that Compact has made to enabling better relationships between civil society and Government; notes the important role of local Compact agreements in helping build better communities through stronger partnerships; and celebrates the vital contribution that the voluntary and community sectors make to society.”
