Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and High Town Barracks, Wrexham

Volume 624: debated on Tuesday 25 April 2017

I rise to present a petition of 793 residents of Wrexham.

The petition states:

The petition of residents of Wrexham in the constituency of Wrexham,

Declares that the petitioners recognise the long military tradition of Wrexham and North Wales and its relationship with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers; further declares that they are deeply concerned over the proposal to move the battalion headquarters from Wrexham to Bristol, and away from the area which has served the British Army and Wales for so many years.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to retain the current 101 Battalion Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers in Wrexham.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
