I present the petition of Mr. Frank Round and his daughter, Mrs. Paula Sharrock on behalf of his other daughter, who was killed in a road accident. Death was caused by dangerous driving, but the person responsible was given only a one-year sentence.

The petition states:
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons increase the maximum sentence available to the courts for this offence and call upon the Lord Chancellor to ensure that the courts use this increased maximum when passing sentence.
And the Petitioners remain etc.

To lie upon the Table.
