Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Alex Chalk's petition debate contributions
19 May 2019
closed 1 year, 10 months ago

Schools are having to make difficult choices on how to spend their limited funding as their income has not kept pace with the rise in costs since 2010. All schools are working very hard to “make ends meet” but this is becoming increasingly difficult and verging on almost impossible.

Ban the sale of fireworks to the public. Displays for licenced venues only.

Every year fireworks are set off unnecessarily.
Fireworks are a nuisance to the public. They scare animals, young children and people with a phobia.
They injure thousands of people every year.
They cause damage to buildings, vehicles,emergancy vehicles etc.
Lastly Kids are STILL being sold them.

Allow Premier League and Championship football clubs to introduce safe standing

Gov Responded - 3 May 2018 Debated on - 25 Jun 2018 View Alex Chalk's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 10 months ago

Safe Standing offers a much safer alternative to fans who wish to stand, rather than sit at football matches. After the highly successful introduction to rail seating at Celtic Park, as well as numerous Bundesliga clubs, many football fans feel that laws preventing standing areas should be relaxed.

Ban the sale of animal fur in the UK.

Gov Responded - 28 Nov 2017 Debated on - 4 Jun 2018 View Alex Chalk's petition debate contributions

closed 3 years ago

Fur farming was banned in England and Wales in 2000, followed by Scotland in 2002. However fur products can still be legally imported from other countries and sold here in the UK. Much of this fur comes from countries that have very weak or no animal welfare laws at all.

Ban the sale of puppies by pet shops & all commercial 3rd party dealers.

Gov Responded - 20 Mar 2018 Debated on - 21 May 2018 View Alex Chalk's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 7 months ago

Removing puppies for sale from litter & mum often creates sick, traumatised, dysfunctional dogs. Puppies should be seen with their mum & transporting them to a different place for sale harms welfare. Regulating commercial 3rd party sales is ineffective to prevent harm & a ban is therefore necessary.

Stop the privatisation of NHS services

Gov Responded - 20 Feb 2018 Debated on - 23 Apr 2018 View Alex Chalk's petition debate contributions

We call for a ban on the outsourcing (privatisation) of NHS services, and stop the renewal of any outsourcing contracts already signed. Companies should not be profiteering from NHS contracts, when every pound of NHS budgets is desperately needed for more doctors and nurses, and to pay them more.

Every single person who works in public services needs and deserve a pay rise. It’s time for the pay cap to be scrapped, for the government to provide additional funding for public sector pay and for employers to put public sector workers pay up now.
