Changes to local Bus services in Torbay

I rise to present the petition of residents of Torbay on the changes to local bus services. I pay tribute to the work of Rosemary Shaw, who helped to collect names for the petition. It was signed by hundreds of people on paper and more than 1,300 people online.

The petition states:

The petition of users of the No.32 bus service in Torbay,

Declares that the change of service for the number 32 bus service between St Marychurch-Torbay Hospital/The Willows will have a detrimental impact on local residents, in particular, elderly residents.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges Torbay Council to commit to re-instating the service route of the No.32 service for the sake of the local residents as soon as possible.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
