Park Road Branch Post Office

6 pm

I present the petition of Mr. William Burkitt and 400 other of my constituents living in the Park Road area of Hastings. I wholly support the petition, which calls on the Post Office to withdraw its proposals to close the Park Road branch post office, which would cause undue distress to many, particularly elderly, people living in the area. The petition

Declares that the proposed closure of Park Road Branch Post Office, Hastings, will cause difficulties to elderly and disabled residents and that the alternatives proposed by the Post Office are not acceptable.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Post Office to reconsider such proposals and allow the Park Road branch to continue providing a service to the community.
And the Petitioners remain, &c.

To lie upon the Table.

Raf Northolt

6.1 pm

On behalf of almost 1,000 of my constituents, I present a petition opposing any further expansion in the use by commercial air traffic of RAF Northolt, which neighbours my constituency. My constituents are concerned that the possible increase

in the current level of air traffic accruing from the shared military and commercial use of RAF Northolt would have adverse environmental consequences and social costs, namely noise and atmospheric pollution, as well as a considerable further reduction in the amenity of the local people.
They ask the Secretary of State for Transport and the Secretary of State for Defence
not to allow any further significant increase in the number of flights departing or landing at RAF Northolt.

To lie upon the Table.
