I have the honour to present this petition to the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. This is the first volume of nine similar volumes. In 1994, I presented a petition on behalf of the National Council of Women.
The petition reads:
The Humble Petition of Members of Action for Children Campaign, the National Council of Women of Great Britain, Affiliated Societies and Residents and Citizens of the United Kingdom
That we, the undersigned, hereby:
Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House do introduce legislation to ensure that citizens of the United Kingdom who commit serious sexual offences against children abroad can be prosecuted in this country.
And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, etc.To lie upon the Table.
