Thank you for allowing me to present my petition, Mr Speaker.

Sam, a constituent of mine, has had his application for a long-term visa refused by the UK Border Agency, which plans to send him back to America within days.

The Petition of residents of Pendle, Lancashire, and others,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that Sam Fontana Wright should be allowed leave to remain in Britain.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage the UK Border Agency to halt his deportation and reconsider his case.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
