SUPPLEMENT TO THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS

PETITION FROM RESIDENTS OF HASTINGS AND ROTHER

12th October 2006

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of John Baker, Chairman of Friends of the Conquest, and others,

Declares that residents of Hastings and Rother, in the sixtieth year of the NHS, appreciate the services delivered at the local Conquest Hospital.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to direct Health Authorities to ensure that any reorganisations will not involve the downgrading of existing services at the Conquest Hospital or in any way compromise the Accident and Emergency Service now provided.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.


SUPPLEMENT TO THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS

PETITION FROM RESIDENTS OF HADLEIGH, ESSEX AND OTHERS

16th October 2006

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of residents of Hadleigh, Essex and others,

Declares that the petitioners are deeply concerned about planned development at Park Chase where it is proposed to knock down four buildings and replace them with 29 flats, which would put the local infrastructure and community under unacceptable strain, and leads to a number of substantial planning objections including the lack of provision of amenity space, insufficient parking or on site turning, is detrimental to the street scene and will be overbearing on neighbouring houses, not least because of the unacceptable four storey height of the development. Further declares that the petitioners note the efforts of the local press and MP to fight overdevelopment and inappropriate back garden development and the imposition of flat land development which are damaging our community.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons call upon the Government to bring to Castle Point Borough Councillors' attention the need to decide this application at full council and to reject the application on behalf of local residents and in respect for the quality of life of Hadleigh people.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.


SUPPLEMENT TO THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS

PETITION FROM MR STAN WHITE AND OTHER CUSTOMERS OF ROTHWELL POST OFFICE

18th October 2006

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of Mr Stan White and other customers of Rothwell Post Office.

Declares that The Petitioners believe that the post office network provides a vital service to local communities in both urban and rural areas which is threatened by the Government's withdrawal of services from local post offices.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons call on the Government to reverse its announcement that it will end support for the Post Office Card Account in 2010 thereby threatening the viability of thousands of post offices and urge the Government to immediately halt its activities designed to kill the account off in advance of that date.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

18th October 2006

The Petition of the people of Irlam and Cadishead,

Declares that we, the undersigned, call for a change in the law whereby all off road bikes, (including mini motos, trial bikes, quad bikes, petrol scooters and go-peds) are registered with the DVLA and carry a visible licence plate.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Home Secretary to register such vehicles and require them to carry a visible licence plate.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.


SUPPLEMENT TO THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS

PETITION FROM RESIDENTS OF TORRIDGE AND WEST DEVON

18th October 2006

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

The Humble Petition of residents of Torridge and West Devon,

Sheweth

That any decision not to renew the Government subsidy paid to the rural post office network and the withdrawal of the Post Office Card Account, when combined with the loss of other sources of revenue, may render the rural post office network unsustainable and force sub-post office branches to close.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House shall urge the Government to recognise the importance of Post Offices to those living in rural communities, to reconsider its decision neither to continue with nor to replace the Post Office Card Account, to undertake to support and sustain the Rural Post Office Network and to prevent the further closure of sub post office branches.

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