§ Mr. Derek Wyatt (Sittingbourne and Sheppey)
The petition of the residents of Sittingbourne declares:That there is an urgent need to build a new secondary school on the north side of Sittingbourne to meet the needs of young people in north Sittingboume, Milton Regis, Kemsley and the villages of Iwade and Lower Halstow. Such a development is necessary to guarantee parental choice, to develop community awareness and to avoid transport chaos in the centre of Sittingboume.The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons call on the Department for Education and Skills and Kent county council to consider as a matter of urgency the planning and siting of a new secondary school in north Sittingboume.And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
