Stop MLA’s Salary until Stormont has a sitting Assembly - Final Signatures: 22,468

Northern Irish MLA’s continue to be paid around £35k a year, despite not having a sitting assembly in over two years and refusing to attend negotiations. This is unacceptable, MLA salaries should cease until a negotiation has been reached and a sitting Northern Irish Assembly has been restored.

The Government responsed to this petition on 5th March 2019 (View Full Response)
While the Assembly is not sitting, the Government recognises that MLAs continue to be active in constituency work. MLA salaries have been reduced to reflect the work MLAs are currently doing.

Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019. - Final Signatures: 608,152

We are wasting Billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time. Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently. The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner.

The deal that we have reached with the EU is the right one for the United Kingdom. Leaving without a deal would risk uncertainty for the economy, for business and for citizens.

Stop the passing of the Abortion Law in Northern Ireland - Final Signatures: 16,032

The British parliament recently voted to legalise same sex marriage and abortion in Northern Ireland by a rather substantial majority. This was a vote nothing to do with the Northern Irish people and gave the people of Northern Ireland no say. Many people in NI and the UK are certainly outraged.

The Government responsed to this petition on 4th September 2019 (View Full Response)
In the absence of a restored Northern Ireland Executive and functioning Assembly, Parliament has placed a legal duty on the Government to reform Northern Ireland’s abortion law.
