Presented Petitions

Petitions presented to the House but not read on the Floor

Green Belt Land (Mangotsfield, South Gloucestershire)

The Petition of the residents of Mangotsfield, Rodway and Emersons Green,

Declares that the Petitioners are concerned by recent actions taken by a developer to erect a hoarding fence around a site of protected green belt land at Cossham Street, Mangotsfield, which is used by the local community; and notes that land which has been proved to have been in local community use can apply for permission to be designated as having village green status.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage South Gloucestershire Council to support any forthcoming application by local residents for village green status with regard to green belt land at Cossham Street, Mangotsfield.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Chris Skidmore.]


Industrial Compensation (Stanley Embling)

The Petition of Stanley Embling, a citizen of the UK from Scunthorpe,

Declares that the Petitioner has tried everything in his powers as a former employee of British Steel to obtain compensation for an industrial accident, while on duty; that the Petitioner has suffered from negligence by his employer and their denial of fair hearings for industrial compensation, and that this included intimidation, deception by management, with coercion into retirement; notes that the Petitioner believes that his GMB Union has conspired to defraud him of what was owed to him and many other employees and that, in his attempts to get justice and compensation, he experienced unprofessional conduct and misfeasance by solicitors, the Law Society, the Police, two MPs and HM Court Services; that the Legal Aid Commissioner, the Solicitors’ Regulatory Authority, the Office for the Supervision of Solicitors, the Humberside Police, the Serious Fraud Office and the Metropolitan Police have either refused or failed to investigate the white collar crimes against the Petitioner; and notes that a one-page summary detailing names of solicitors and MPs is publicised on the website of Victims Unite!

The Petitioner therefore requests that the House of Commons urges the Government to compensate the Petitioner in this case.

And the Petitioner remains, etc.
