HC Deb 30 January 2003 vol 398 c1103

6.1 pm

Mr. Derek Wyatt (Sittingbourne and Sheppey)

I wish to present a petition from Robert Wrigley and over 5,000 residents of Sittingbourne in Kent.

The petition states: The Coniston Hotel is a valuable and important resource for the residents of Sittingbourne and provides facilities that are unable to be matched by any other venue within the town. The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons call on the Home Office to urgently reverse the decision to use the Coniston Hotel as a Centre for Asylum Seekers. And the Petitioners remain, etc. To lie upon the Table.

Forward to
