I wish to present a petition on behalf of 5,029 people who are concerned about the future of services at Wharfedale hospital in Otley.

The petition states:

To the House of Commons,

The Petition of residents of Otley and Wharfedale, the surrounding area, and others

Declares the petitioners' serious concerns about the future of the Wharfedale Hospital and services at that hospital, following the sudden closure of Ward One at the Wharfedale.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Health to use her powers to prevent any further cutting of services at the Wharfedale Hospital and calls upon her to provide assurances that the future of the hospital is secure.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.,

To lie upon the Table.
