HC Deb 24 November 1987 vol 123 c231

10.2 pm

Mr. Jimmy Dunnachie (Glasgow, Pollock)

With your permission, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and that of the House, I beg leave to submit this humble petition against the poll tax on behalf of the people in my constituency. They reject the regressive system of taxation which is unrelated to ability to pay, which will be expensive to administer and which will bring hardship to the poorest people in Scotland.

Your petitioners pray that your honourable House repeal the Abolition of Domestic Rates Etc. (Scotland) Act 1987.

To lie upon the Table.
