Rail Services in Bolton

Volume 576: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2014

I present this petition on behalf of the residents of Bolton on similar terms to my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton North East (Mr Crausby). The petition is similarly worded to the one organised by The Bolton News, which was presented in Downing street earlier today.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Bolton,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that the number of peak hour train carriages has decreased in recent years and further that the Petitioners believe the rail services provided are inadequate to meet the needs of local people.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to insist that the Rail companies involved take action to improve Bolton's train service and increase the number of peak hour train carriages.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
