I have 10 petitions to present tonight, out of 27 petitions that have come to the House, and which have been signed by many thousands of Croydon residents. As a courtesy, I shall only read the prayers relating to the petitions.

This petition states:

The Petition of the people of Croydon and its environs,

Declares that ethnic Kurds in Kurdistan do not receive the human rights that they are entitled to expect.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to take steps to liaise with its international partners in the European Union and farther a field to lobby for improved human rights for Kurds in Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
