I rise to present a petition on behalf of approximately 5,000 signatories from the district of Selby in North Yorkshire. The petition reads:

That traffic congestion in the town of Selby severely disrupts its social and economic life and inhibits inward investment in the town.
Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House persuade the Department of Transport to construct a new bypass for the town as soon as the statutory bypass procedures have been completed.
The statutory procedures will be completed in the late summer, before the House returns in the autumn. Therefore, it is essential that the construction is put in hand as soon as practicable after that.

To lie upon the Table.
