Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

It is with great pleasure that I present a petition collected by a number of my constituents affected by the collapse of Farepak. They have collected almost 2,500 signatures on the streets of Ayrshire.

The petition asks that the Government do everything they can to make sure that those throughout the country who through no fault of their own have been adversely affected by the Farepak collapse are given compensation, and that such a thing will never happen again.

The petition states:

The petitioners condemn the actions of the Christmas savings club known as “Farepak”, that has resulted in hundreds of thousand of families on low and moderate incomes having their savings effectively stolen from them.

To lie upon the Table.
