§ Mr. Ben Chapman (Wirral, South)(Lab)
I wish to present a petition on behalf of more than 600 constituents to protest at the failure of United Utilities to accelerate measures to stem the foul odours emanating from its Bromborough waste water treatment plant, which blight local residents' lives.
The petition states:To the House of Commons.
The petition of residents affected by odours from Bromborough Waste Water Treatment Works operated by United Utilities declares
That they demand that action be taken to end the intolerable smells from the plant that have pervaded nearby houses and shopping areas for too long.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons calls upon United Utilities to bring forward its programme of remedial work at the Bromborough site, and call upon the Government to hasten legislation requiring utility companies to operate water treatment plants in accordance with strict rules and to have due regard to the environment and all who live or work nearby.
And the petitioners remain, etc.
§ To lie upon the Table.
