It gives me great pleasure to introduce two petitions representing local concerns in the Brecon and Radnorshire constituency. The first of them is from Councillor William Powell and others of like disposition and expresses concern about the possible closure of community hospitals in the area.

The petition states:

That there is unanimous support among local residents to keep open the community hospitals in Knighton, Builth Wells and Bronllys. That these hospitals provide excellent local healthcare for the very young to the very old and provide facilities for visiting specialists to deliver outpatient treatments and consultations. That the hospitals work well with the local general practitioners to provide an integrated healthcare service. That excellent care is provided for people suffering such illnesses as strokes at these locations which are accessible to the general public, and that local people look towards developing and expanding these centres or excellence, rather than their closure.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
