Doncaster bid for Great British Railways headquarters

Volume 719: debated on Thursday 22 September 2022

The petition of residents of the United Kingdom,

Declares that the new Great British Railways headquarters should be located in the railway town of Doncaster; notes that Doncaster is where the Mallard and Flying Scotsman were built, highlighting its rich railway heritage; further that Doncaster is located on the main line; and further that Doncaster has a great history and great people who will benefit from the creation of a new Great British Railways headquarters in their town.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to note the nomination of Doncaster to house the new headquarters of Great British Railways.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Nick Fletcher, Official Report, 18 May 2022; Vol. 714, c. 806.]
