Volume 525: debated on Wednesday 16 March 2011

Police Station (Wombourne, South Staffordshire)

It is a pleasure to present this petition, which has been signed by 1,256 people who support my campaign to keep a police station in Wombourne.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of the South Staffordshire constituency, and others,

Declares that the police station in Wombourne is being considered for closure; and further declares that Wombourne has a population of 14,000 who depend upon the service that it provides.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to take all possible steps to ensure that the police station or a new alternative station is opened in the village of Wombourne to serve its residents and those in the local area.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
