Wyther Park Primary School, Leeds

10.51 pm

I present a petition that is the result of the work of the Wyther Park primary school in my constituency. The pupils carried out an environmental project, tested the quality of the water in the River Aire and found it to be badly polluted. They joined 12 other schools in the Kirkstall Valley area and, to their great credit, organised a petition of well over 5,000 signatures.

The petition reads:

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House insists that the money paid to Her Majesty's Government and to Yorkshire Water by the people of Leeds, be used immediately to ensure that the water is clean and safe as it runs through the Valley and the City.

To lie upon the Table.
