I am delighted to present a petition on behalf of my constituents in South Holland. It is supported by at least 2,500 of them. Indeed, I have met almost no one in my constituency who does not sympathise with what it espouses. It concerns the protection of public services in Spalding, which have an effect on a wider area around the town. I am proud to present the petition, which has my unstinting and unequivocal support.

The Petition of people of South Holland,

Declares that large parts of their public services are being cut and privatised and that across the UK public servants are struggling to deliver good quality service in the midst of redundancies, low pay and rising workloads. Further declares that the HMRC Office in Spalding is vital to helping those that are self employed, employed, families on tax credits, pensioners and unemployed persons.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges HM Treasury to work to ensure that the HMRC Office in Spalding remains open.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
