With your permission, Madam Deputy Speaker, and that of the House, I beg to ask leave to present a petition on behalf of members of the Church in Wales in Holyhead. This petition relates to the detention of the Soviet Christian Anna Chertkova, who is detained in a prison psychiatric hospital.

The petitioners pray that the House of Commons do encourage the Foreign Secretary to make representations to the Soviet Government for the purpose of achieving Miss Chertkova's release and reunion with relatives in the West. There are 23 signatories to the petition.

To lie upon the Table.
