8th March 2006

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of residents of Mayfield and Ellastone, Staffordshire,

Declares that the Petitioners are concerned by the plans to reorganise ambulance services and believe that they will result in a significant drop in the standards of emergency medical care in their rural part of Staffordshire.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Prime Minister, the Secretary of State for Health and the Minister of State for Health Services:

  • to guarantee that the high standards of emergency medical care the petitioners enjoy at present will be maintained;

  • to guarantee that community first responders will continue to attend all the types of incidents they attend now without any reduction in the drugs they are allowed to use to help patients or to protect themselves; and

  • to exclude Staffordshire Ambulance Service from the proposed reconfiguration programme until such time as its high standards have been matched across the remainder of the proposed West Central region.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.


SUPPLEMENT TO THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS

PETITION FROM RESIDENTS OF WROUGHTON ROAD AND CROFT ROAD, SWINDON

8th March 2006

To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.

The Humble Petition of Wroughton and Croft Road residents and others in the Borough of Swindon and elsewhere of like disposition.

Sheweth

That having petitioned Swindon Borough Council on 24th November 2005 and having received a response that the matter would not be debated further on the grounds that planning permission for the Southern Development Area known as Swindon's Front Garden has already been granted and having found that this response in no way answered the question and Petition which pointed out that the conditions have yet to be met for the Croft Road to Hay Lane Link with tunnel under the M4 with direct connection to M4 Junction 16, that the road is not yet adopted in the development plan, alternative routes have not been properly considered and there have been changes of circumstance.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House shall urge the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister to consider the plight of the residents of Wroughton and Croft Road and others in the Borough of Swindon and elsewhere who fear the consequences for traffic and carbon emissions and endeavour to ensure that the alternative route crossing the railway and linking back to Swindon with shorter local journeys and the opportunity for a public transport interchange is now considered.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.


SUPPLEMENT TO THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS

Observations by the Secretary of State for Transport on the Petition [19th January] from residents and businesses of Hartlepool and others for a direct rail link from Hartlepool to London.

    A decision on whether to grant Grand Central Trains access to the East Coast Main Line is a matter for the independent Office of Rail Regulation (ORR). The ORR has announced that its provisional decision is that it is minded to approve Grand Central Trains' application. It has since received a number of comments on that provisional decision, including one from the Department for Transport. In the light of those comments, ORR has indicated that it proposes to hold a hearing on 6 March before announcing its final decision later in the month.
