I present a petition on behalf of my constituents who were affected by the floods in December 1994 and whose lives have been devastated since that time. Many of them have not yet been able to return to their homes. The petition
Declares that the floods which affected the South End of Paisley during December 1994, brought misery to hundreds of families and that Her Majesty's Government have so far taken no action to prevent such flooding occurring again.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urgently put in place measures to impose powers and duties on national and local bodies to establish adequate flood prevention measures where these are required.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
