Economic and Voting Scales
I wish to present a petition in the name of my constituent, Mr. Martin Burke.
The petition states:
The Petition of Mr. Martin Burke,
Declares that Mr. Martin Burke of ‘Elizabeth Regina Love’ has written to several Members of the Commons and Lords individually and collectively in the past three years and now wishes to introduce himself and address the Commons as a whole;
Further declares that Mr. Burke worked on his own initiative since 2005 and made a contribution to the resolution of several national and international emergencies: 7/7; Northern Ireland; Iraq; Afghanistan; entrenching democracy in Pakistan; Darfur; the Burma cyclone; the North Korea nuclear crisis; the Royal Navy prisoners in Iran; the Lebanon War 2006; the development of the Palestinian state; relations with Russia, Zimbabwe, Gaza and Sri Lanka, and with others;
Further declares that prior to ‘Elizabeth Regina Love’ (est. 2004) Mr. Burke carried out fundamental work in the field of Economics and Mathematics, discovering and defining a new mathematical object in 1997, the General Economic Measurement Scale, simple illustrations of which were prepared for the Bank of England in 2005; notes that until this time the science of Economics did not have a defined measurement scale; further notes that an eminent academic confirmed no prior literature in 2006; further notes that the General Democratic Voting Scale was defined in 2007; further notes that these objects can be seen at www.eheartr.com and have been accepted by the British Library; further notes that the symbol for ‘Elizabeth Regina Love’ is by invitation of the Lord Chamberlain on behalf of the Queen; further notes that Mr. Burke works independently and on his own initiative and this is his petition; and further notes that these objects have not previously been reported in Hansard.
The Petitioner therefore requests that the House of Commons bears in mind the General Economic Measurement Scale and the General Democratic Voting Scale in its work on the current challenges facing the country and in its future law making, and uses them in its thinking, whatever the consequences to the petitioner of the small parts played by him in the above declared events; and the petitioner further requests that the House accepts these objects for inclusion in the House of Commons Library where Members can see them.
And the Petitioner remains, etc.
I beg leave to present to the House a petition signed by 6,000 residents, the majority of whom are parents of young children, and who live in Ingleby Barwick, a residential area in my constituency. They are requesting that the Government locate the rebuilding of Egglescliffe school in the Preston Park area of Stockton-on-Tees, so that the school will serve the two communities of Ingleby Barwick and Egglescliffe, delivering excellent education to all children.
The petition states:
The Petition of residents of Barwick, and others,
Declares that providing a secondary school of 900 places in or on the periphery of Barwick would offer choice and diversity to the parents and children of Ingleby Barwick, improve standards of education for children, and would allow children to be educated locally within their town; believes that this could be achieved by moving the secondary school currently based in Egglescliffe to Preston (within the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees) so that children from both areas could attend the school.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support the request made by parents to move the secondary school currently based in Egglescliffe to Preston (within the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees) so that children from both areas could attend the school.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
This petition relates to a road proposal being brought forward by Cheshire West and Chester local authority to link the Winnington urban village to the A556. The proposed road will pass through the Hartford part of my constituency and through a conservation area. If this had been a planning application, it would have been refused. However, because it is a road scheme, it is being permitted to go ahead. Unfortunately, the work started on Monday. This petition has been collected by the Hartford civic society and contains more than 800 names.
To the House of Commons:
The Petition of residents of Hartford, and others:
The proposed slip road to be built at Bradburns Lane and Chester Road will destroy a triangular grassed area with an ancient fountain, leading to the irreversible loss of a major village feature; further declares that the proposals ignore the area’s status as a designated conservation area; believes that the slip road will offer no benefit to Hartford residents and that it would only marginally improve traffic flow from Winnington Urban Village; further believes that the slip road would be a waste of £500,000 of public money; and supports the Hartford Civic Society, the Parish Council and the Borough Conservation Manager in their opposition to the proposed slip road.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to take whatever action possible to prevent the construction of the slip road at Bradburns Lane and Chester Road.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
