That this House recognises that 20 May 2014 marks the 150th Anniversary of the death of John Clare, one of England's greatest poets of the countryside; and congratulates the John Clare Trust on its campaign to ensure that every child has a right to explore and learn in the natural environment, and in particular its determination, with its 150 Campaign, to ensure that children and schools in all communities have an opportunity to enjoy the full benefits of our countryside.
