I beg to present a Petition signed by more than 8,000 persons resident in or near Windermere and Ambleside who are distressed at the decision to dismantle the war-time aircraft factory in that district.

"Wherefore your Petitioners pray for the retention of the Calgarth factory to accommodate a suitable, clean, light industry to provide employment with reasonable standards of living, to obviate the migration of young persons from the district, to create no nuisance to amenities, and to contribute to the national export drive, as is the duty of all. Your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray."

Petition to lie upon the Table.
