Bus Services

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

I am pleased to have the opportunity to present a petition from my constituent, Mrs. Sandra Warburton, and residents of Boothstown, Ellenbrook and Worsley. My constituents are experiencing extreme difficulties because bus services on which they relied have been cut entirely or re-routed. Constituents who are older or who have disabilities are particularly hard hit by the changes, and they find that accessing GP appointments or other services in the community and shopping have become very difficult. I commend the petition of the people of Boothstown, Ellenbrook and Worsley, signed by over 300 people, to the House.

The petition declares:

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Transport Secretary to request the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Authority to discuss with local transport providers ways in which bus services can be re-instated on routes where they have been recently cut.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
