Intercity Express Programme

Volume 516: debated on Wednesday 13 October 2010

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of the Sedgefield constituency, and others,

Declares that the petitioners believe that the Government should implement the procurement of rolling stock through the Intercity Express programme, which would lead to Hitachi building a manufacturing site in Newton Aycliffe; and further declares that this would result in the creation of hundreds of direct jobs and thousands of jobs in the supply chain, of which the majority would be in manufacturing, giving a much needed boost to the North East economy and improving rail services nationwide.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to implement the procurement of rolling stock through the Intercity Express Programme.

And the Petitioners remain, etc. [P000863]
