This evening I have two petitions to present, one from the campaign for a sustainable Harlington and one from the campaign for a sustainable Toddington, both of which are in my constituency. Both Toddington and Harlington declare their opposition to proposals to destroy the green belt around Harlington and Toddington by building a stadium and a large industrial complex and commercial development on the land adjacent to junction 12 of the M1. Luton Town football club and the council should find—and would prefer to find—a sustainable urban site for the new stadium within the boundaries of Luton, preferably looking at areas around junctions 10 or 11A of the M1. The petitions state:

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to take steps to preserve the green belt land around Harlington and Toddington for the good of the people who live in both places and to preserve their quality and standard of life.

Following is the full text of the petitions:

[ The Petition of the campaign for a sustainable Harlington,

Declares their opposition to proposals to destroy the green belt around Harlington by building a stadium and a large industrial/commercial development on land adjacent to Junction 12 of the M1.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to take steps to preserve the green belt around Harlington.

And the Petitioners remain, etc. ]
