That this House notes that 22 September 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the signing of the treaty which established the US-UK Fulbright Commission, responsible for delivering the Fulbright awards to American and British grantees; recognises the achievement of the US-UK programme which has seen more than 12,750 UK nationals and over 10,626 US nationals cross the Atlantic to study; acknowledges the programme's contribution to furthering the Special Relationship from the friendships made as succeeding generations have come to a deeper understanding of each other; further acknowledges that a Fulbright scholarship has been the catalyst for important scientific discoveries, Nobel prizes, great novelists and playwrights, economists and politicians; and calls on the Government on this significant occasion of the 70th anniversary of the creation of the US-UK Fulbright Commission to pledge to continue to support the US-UK Fulbright programme.
