Pet Theft Reform 2020: Revise the sentencing guidelines in the Theft Act 1968 to reclassify pet theft as a specific crime. Ensure that monetary value is irrelevant for the categorisation of dog and cat theft crime for sentencing purposes. Recognise pet theft as a category 2 offence or above.

Violet-Grace’s Law - Life sentences for Death by Dangerous Driving

Gov Responded - 25 Feb 2019 Debated on - 8 Jul 2019 View Gareth Johnson's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 7 months ago

The men who killed our daughter drove a stolen a car at 83 mph in a 30 mph zone. They killed our 4-year-old daughter Violet-Grace and severely injured her nan, who has life-changing injuries. They will serve less time in prison than Violet was alive. I don’t want other families to suffer like this.

Reclassify the theft of a pet to a specific crime in its own right.

Gov Responded - 27 Feb 2018 Debated on - 2 Jul 2018 View Gareth Johnson's petition debate contributions

Review the sentencing guidelines for theft offences, so that where the theft of a family pet is involved, monetary value is irrelevant for the categorisation of the crime for sentencing purposes.

Ensure Police Forces are given appropriate guidance and training to record and investigate cases.

Abolish the TV Licence

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

closed 3 years 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.
