Southend West Petitions

e-Petitions are administered by Parliament and allow members of the public to express support for a particular issue.

If an e-petition reaches 10,000 signatures the Government will issue a written response.

If an e-petition reaches 100,000 signatures the petition becomes eligible for a Parliamentary debate (usually Monday 4.30pm in Westminster Hall).

Petition Debates Contributed

The Government should repeal breed specific provisions in dangerous dogs legislation. We believe these provisions are a flawed approach to public safety and an ethical failing with regards to animal welfare.

Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
14th Jun 2022
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if his Department will develop an action plan for setting out how the widespread adoption of human relevant research techniques can be facilitated.

Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, published the UK non-animal technologies roadmap in 2015 alongside the NC3Rs, the research councils and the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, setting out a long-term vision and strategy for non-animal technologies in the UK.

Innovate UK also supports innovative businesses in the development of non-animal technologies such as tumour organoids, stem cell-based disease models for drug discovery and research through programmes such as the Biomedical Catalyst and SMART, with additional infrastructure support provided through the Medicine Discovery Catapult.

George Freeman
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)
18th May 2022
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether he has plans to consult Parliament on the future direction of UK fisheries management before publishing the final Joint Fisheries Statement in November 2022.

The Fisheries Act 2020 requires each fisheries policy authority to lay a copy of the Joint Fisheries Statement (JFS) consultation draft before the appropriate legislature. This requirement was met on 17 January 2022. In parallel, the JFS was published for public consultation on 18 January.

Both parliamentary scrutiny and the consultation process concluded on 12 April. However, owing to the dissolution of the Northern Ireland Assembly, scrutiny in Northern Ireland concluded on 25 March. Between now and November, we will be amending the JFS draft. During this time, Ministers remain open to engaging with Parliamentarians in the process to finalise the JFS.

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, following the consultation on the draft Joint Fisheries Statement, whether he has plans to consult Parliament on the future direction of UK fisheries management before publishing the final Joint Fisheries Statement in November 2022.

It has not proved possible to respond to the hon. Member in the time available before Prorogation.

Minister of State (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)
14th Jun 2022
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if her Department will carry out a review of the procedure for granting licences for animal experiments to help ensure that the provisions of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 are being enforced.

The Regulator for the use of animals in science fully implements the provisions of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 by following a published procedure for the granting of project licences.

The regulator has recently improved its processes and systems through a regulatory reform programme to assure compliance of establishments with the legislation.
