I wish to present a petition from Ruth Ingham and others.

The petition declares:
That the removal of restrictions on pharmacies able to dispense NHS prescriptions will have a detrimental effect on local chemists.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government both to reject proposals that would allow unrestricted opening of pharmacies able to dispense NHS prescriptions and to preserve local pharmacies and safeguard their continued services to local communities.
And the Petitioners remain etc.

To lie upon the Table.
