§ Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock (Batley and Spen)
I beg leave to present a petition that has been signed by more than 3,000 constituents. It asks the Secretary of State for the Environment to introduce legislation to replace Kirklees metropolitan council with at least two smaller district councils to administer the Greater Huddersfield area and Batley, Dewsbury and Spen valley.
Many of my constituents believe that Kirklees council is remote and that it ignores their needs. They also believe that Kirklees council neglects to invest in Batley and Spen. This is the first phase of what I suggest will be a larger petition.
