Declares that the petitioners believe that the Government should implement the procurement of rolling stock through the Intercity Express Programme, which would lead to Hitachi building a manufacturing site in Newton Aycliffe; and further that this would result in the creation of hundreds of direct jobs and thousands of jobs in the supply chain, of which the majority would be in manufacturing, giving a much needed boost to the North East economy and improving rail services nationwide. The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the government to implement the procurement of rolling stock through the Intercity Express Programme.
