§ Mr. Tom Clarke (Monklands, West)
Mr. Deputy Speaker, on behalf of my hon. Friend the Member for Monklands, East (Mrs. Liddell) and myself, I beg leave to present a petition to the House, signed by close on 10,000 of our constituents, in support of a very important group in Monklands. This group deals with people who are disabled and who are involved in sport, and it has found that its funding will be reduced so radically that it may not be able to continue its work. The petition states:To the honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.The Humble Petition of Residents of Monklands District ShewethThat the Disport Project has been very successful in assisting disabled in Monklands but its future is endangered by lack of resources.Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House will urge the Secretary of State for Scotland to ensure the maintenance of adequate resources for the continued running of this Project.And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, M. Wilkinson, 72 Craigend Drive.I beg leave to present the Petition.
§ To lie upon the Table.
