HC Deb 16 March 1989 vol 149 c628

10 pm

Mr. Michael Brown (Brigg and Cleethorpes)

I wish to present a petition on behalf of 7,000 people from the county of Humberside.

The petition was organised by Mrs. Jane Day of 8, John Harrison close, Barrow on Humber. Mrs. Day is a constituent of mine. She obtained the 7,000 signatures over the course of the last few months from shopping precincts in Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Winterton, Brigg and Barton. The petition was inspired as a result of a tragic case in my constituency some time ago in which a six-month-old baby girl was raped and left blind and mentally handicapped, and by an Old Bailey case of parents who starved to death a 10-month-old baby boy.

The petition reads as follows:

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House:—

To lie upon the Table.
