The Government should cancel GCSEs and A Levels in 2021 due to the disruption of Covid-19. By the time students go back to normal learning, 6 months will have passed since schools were closed to most pupils. This has already had a huge impact on the studying of so many.

Keep schools closed until Covid 19 is no longer a threat

Gov Responded - 25 Nov 2020 Debated on - 7 Dec 2020 View Bill Esterson's petition debate contributions

closed 2 months, 3 weeks ago

The threat of covid19 is real. Children can’t be expected to maintain sufficient social distancing to keep this virus from spreading. They are social creatures. Allowing them back to school could cause a new spike in cases. They could bring it back home, even if they are a-symptomatic.

Omit the NHS from any future trade deal with the US

Gov Responded - 23 Jun 2020 Debated on - 16 Nov 2020 View Bill Esterson's petition debate contributions

closed 3 months, 2 weeks ago

As the Coronavirus escalates, there are concerns that a trade deal between the UK Government and the US deal might not exempt our NHS, leaving it vulnerable to privatisation and in direct contradiction to promises this would not happen.
