I am tempted to say “ditto”. This petition is on behalf of 800 residents of Darlington.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of the Borough of Darlington,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that Associated Transport Provision to schools within the borough should continue to be provided for children starting secondary school from 2013 onwards, as while the Petitioners understand the financial constraints facing Darlington Borough Council, the Petitioners believe that ending the service will be detrimental to children, families and local communities.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to work with Darlington Borough Council to ensure that Associated Transport Provision to schools within the Borough of Darlington continues to be provided for children starting secondary school from 2013 onwards.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
