HC Deb 06 November 1962 vol 666 cc769-70
Mr. Lubbock

I beg leave to present a Petition from the Knockholt Ward in the urban district of Orpington. It is signed by 524 electors, amounting to 70 per cent. of the electorate of the village of Knockholt, and they state that under the proposals of Her Majesty's Government the Knockholt Ward will be part of the proposed borough No. 19 and that they feel strongly that the rural character of the village of Knockholt will be best retained by remaining in the administrative county of Kent. And, finally, your Petitioners pray your honourable House that all possible steps should be taken for the village of Knockholt to remain in Kent and not be included in the Greater London plan. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
