I wish to present a petition from the Calderdale Schools Against Vouchers in Education. The petition contains 10,000 signatures from the people of Halifax and the Calder Valley. The petitioners urge the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Education and Employment to exempt them from nursery vouchers because, in their opinion, Calderdale is already a high provider of good quality nursery and reception education. They believe that it would be more appropriate to concentrate on supplying adequately provided state nursery and reception places for all children.

To lie upon the Table.
