I wish to present a petition signed by approximately 1,500 people on behalf of the staff and customers of the Revenue and Customs office in Boston, Lincolnshire.

The petitioners declare that they are concerned about cuts to public services, particularly the proposed closure of the HMRC office in Boston, which could have detrimental impacts not only on the staff of the office but on the many businesses and individuals who use the office, and would result in more traffic on Boston's already congested roads.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge Her Majesty's Treasury to work to ensure that the HMRC office in Boston remains open.

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The Petition of staff and customers of the Revenue and Customs Office in Boston, Lincolnshire,

Declares that they are concerned about cuts to public services, particularly the proposed closure of the HMRC office in Boston.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges HM Treasury to reconsider the decision to close the office in Boston, which provides an excellent service to local people.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.]

[P000234]
