I am grateful for this opportunity to present a petition of more than 10,500 names in conjunction with the hon. Member for Aberdeen, North (Mr. Hughes). It has been signed by people of the city of Aberdeen and north-east Scotland who disagree strongly with the decision to relocate the Food Science Laboratory at Torry in my constituency to the Central Science Laboratory at York. The petition states: Wherefore your petitioners pray that your honourable House do urge the Right Honourable William Waldegrave, M.P., Minister for Agriculture Fisheries and Food to intervene in the proposal to relocate Food Science Laboratory, Torry, 135 Abbey Road, Aberdeen.And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray &c.

To lie upon the Table.

I too have a petition from Aberdeen in north-east Scotland. It has been signed by 10,500 people to add to that presented already by the hon. Member for Aberdeen, South (Mr. Robertson), making 21,023 people in total. They are deeply concerned at, and protesting against, the possible relocation of the Food Science Laboratory in Torry, Aberdeen to the Central Science Laboratory in York. Those signatures were collected in a short space of time, showing that the scientific facilities and skilled staff will be sorely missed. Wherefore your petitioners pay that your honourable House do urge the Right Honourable William Waldegrave, M.P., Minister for Agriculture Fisheries and Food to intervene in the proposal to relocate Food Science Laboratory, Torry, 135 Abbey Road, Aberdeen.And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.To lie upon the Table.
