HC Deb 07 June 1985 vol 80 cc602-3

2 pm

Ms. Richardson

I beg to ask leave to present a second petition, signed by 200 residents and visitors to the town of Brighton. The signatures have been collected only over the past week, and one will see why the people are concerned in a moment. It reads:

To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. The Humble Petition of UK Residents sheweth that citizens of and visitors to Brighton deplore the declared intention of the hon. Member for Brighton, Kemptown to make unprecedented use of his first place in Private Member's Motions on June 7 to permit proceedings on the Unborn Children (Protection) Bill. Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House do vote against the Motion of the hon. Member for Brighton, Kemptown.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will every pray, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
