That this Government without delay recognises the need for a non-means tested bridging pension for women born on or after 6/4/1950 who are affected by the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts and compensate those at risk of losing up to around £45,000, to also give proper notification for any future changes.

Pay Up Now! – Scrap the pay cap and give public servants a meaningful pay rise

Gov Responded - 9 Oct 2017 Debated on - 4 Dec 2017 View Chris Elmore's petition debate contributions
12 Mar 2018
closed 2 years, 11 months ago

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.

Abolish the TV Licence

Gov Responded - 17 Oct 2017 Debated on - 20 Nov 2017 View Chris Elmore's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 11 months ago

The TV Licence is no longer fit for purpose and should be abolished. It is unfair that one should hold one to watch Freeview channels or indeed subscription TV. The BBC should look at alternative methods of funding particularly as it is commonly felt there is a high level of bias.
