That this House welcomes the launch of Action for Happiness, a charity which aims to bring people together to help create a happier society, by being a hub for the exchange of new ideas and the dissemination of reliable information; notes that large surveys such as Eurobarometer show the UK's life satisfaction has only changed marginally during the last quarter of a century and other studies even suggest a decline; encourages people to sign up to the Action for Happiness campaign at its website; further welcomes the Office for National Statistics' efforts to measure national wellbeing; and urges the Government to integrate the findings of wellbeing research into its policy making process so that it can play its part in promoting the happiness of the nation.
