I present a petition from my St. Albans constituents, which, I am proud to say, is, I believe, the last of this Parliament.

The petition states:

The Petition of the St. Albans residents

Declares that Vodafone has breached the mobile phone industry's code of best practice in its application to construct a phone mast in London road, St. Albans.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to introduce legislation ensuring that local residents are consulted, and that the needs of children living in residential areas are taken into account before masts are constructed in such areas.

The Petitioners further request that the Government introduce legislation to force mobile phone network providers to use existing masts where such masts already exist.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
