Significant Crawley Petitions

Petition Closed

Restore nature on a massive scale to help stop climate breakdown

Gov Responded - 2 May 2019 Debated on - 28 Oct 2019 View Henry Smith's petition debate contributions
17 Oct 2019
closed 1 year, 6 months ago

To avoid a climate emergency we need to act fast. Rewilding and other natural climate solutions can draw millions of tonnes of CO2 out of the air through restoring and protecting our living systems. We call on the UK government to make a bold financial and political commitment to nature's recovery.

Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Henry Smith's petition debate contributions
19 May 2019
closed 1 year, 11 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.

107,352
Petition Closed

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 Henry Smith's petition debate contributions
8 Aug 2018
closed 2 years, 8 months ago

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.

Petition Closed

Ban the sale of animal fur in the UK.

Gov Responded - 28 Nov 2017 Debated on - 4 Jun 2018 View Henry Smith's petition debate contributions
23 Mar 2018
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 Henry Smith's petition debate contributions
1 Sep 2018
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.
