HC Deb 23 June 2004 vol 422 c1421 5.26 pm
Jim Knight (South Dorset) (Lab)

I have been asked by my constituent Mr. Martin Ball of 18 Cunningham close, Weymouth, to present this petition to the House.

These are his words: The petition of Martin Ball Declares that the History of England appears to have been rewritten. Academic institutions, including BBC History, which the Country is required to fund, seem to be preventing official study of the authentic memoirs of King George II, his sixth Seal and his real life and times. The Petitioner therefore requests that he House of Commons establish an inquiry into the allegation that to all intents and purposes an Englishman may not study this chapter of the History of his own country. And the Petitioner remains, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
