Members will have seen the discussions in our discussion forum about London Thunder and the news itembelow announcing the rally. One of the aims of the rally is to deliver a petition to the House of Commons to highlight the plight of those workers who are losing their jobs in Blackpool and to call on the Government to do everything possible to retain manufacture of TVRs in Britain. Therefore, we need YOUR signature.
The petition reads:
To the House of Commons
The Petition of TVR car owners, car enthusiasts and employees of the company and their families.
Declares that the loss of the manufacture of TVR cars in Blackpool is not only detrimental to the economy and people of the town, but will further erode both this Country's manufacturing base and the reputation for innovative design and engineering enterprise that specialist car companies such as TVR have established over the past sixty years.
The petitioners therefore request that the Prime Minister asks the Department of Trade and Industry to :
(i) Investigate all options that are available to keep the manufacture of TVR cars in Blackpool
(ii) Provide whatever help and guidance may be appropriate from the Secretary of State's good offices to TVR management during the ongoing Consultation Period.
(iii) Provide help, assistance and understanding for the 260 TVR staff from their Local Government as they look for new employment.
