HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 cc841-2 9.36 am
Mr. Terry Davis (Birmingham, Hodge Hill)

I beg to ask leave to present a petition signed by Mrs. Beryl Parker and 3,500 other people living in the catchment area of East Birmingham hospital, protesting about the closure of wards and cuts in medical services at the hospital as a result of underfunding by the regional health authority.

The petitioners pray that the honourable Members of the House of Commons should ask the Secretary of State for Social Services that he should increase the funding of the West Midland Regional Authority to make it possible for the services to be restored and improved in what is one of the most disadvantaged districts in the West Midlands. I wish strongly to support the petition and to associate myself with my constituents' protest.

To lie upon the Table.
