HC Deb 30 July 1976 vol 916 c1070
Dr. Alan Glyn (Windsor and Maidenhead)

I wish to present a petition to the House supported by over 10,000 of my constituents who live in the area of Maidenhead and the surrounding districts. Briefly, the substance of the petition is simply that your petitioners require the authorities to maintain a fully equipped hospital in Maidenhead with operating and casualty facilities to deal with the many cases which occur in the home, in factories and in the schools, and in an area where public transport to other hospitals is extremely difficult and, in many cases, lacking altogether. This is a highly populated area, and your petitioners require a fully-equipped hospital.

Wherefore your petitioners pray that this honourable House will call on the Secretary of State for Social Services to direct that at all times there shall be established a hospital provided with such facilities in Maidenhead. And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
