I wish to present a petition mainly from the residents of the town of Dunstable and the nearby village of Totternhoe, concerning the problems caused by mini motorbikes to my constituents in those areas.
The petition states:
To the House of Commons.
The Petition of the residents of Dunstable and others,
Declares that mini-motorbikes and unregistered off-road motorbikes are causing distress and upset in Hillcroft, Brewers Hill and on many of the surrounding roads, pavements and alleyways in Dunstable as well as on the Green Lanes and farmland between Totternhoe and Dunstable. The motorbikes are causing damage to the land and the actions of the riders are intimidating both humans and wildlife. This problem is ongoing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is being committed by both youths and adults alike. Further declares that this is not just a local problem, but is a problem that is occurring nationally.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the government to introduce legislation to restrict the use of mini-motorbikes and unregistered off-road bikes in uncontrolled areas.
To lie upon the Table.
