Significant Lewisham East Petitions

Current Signatures Final Signatures Title Petition Deadline
Petition Closed

I request a full public inquiry into death of my son, Matthew Leahy. (20 yrs.)

Gov Responded - 2 Aug 2019 Debated on - 30 Nov 2020 View Janet Daby's petition debate contributions
23 Nov 2019
closed 1 year, 4 months ago

Matthew was taken to, ‘a place of safety’, and died 7 days later.
24 others died by the same means, dating back to the year 2000. An indicator that little was done to address the growing problems.
Something went terribly wrong with the NHS Mental Health Services provided to my son.

closes in 2 days, 11 hours

The Government should explore using the new sanctions regime that allows individuals and entities that violate human rights around the world to be targeted, to impose sanctions on members of the Nigerian government and police force involved in any human rights abuses by the Nigerian police.

Petition Closed

Ban the use of all non-recyclable and unsustainable food packaging

Gov Responded - 18 Jun 2019 Debated on - 24 Jun 2019 View Janet Daby's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 10 months ago

Today the Earth is at a crisis point due to our plastic consumption, and as a result, people in the UK are more willing than ever to engage in recycling. Yet so much food packaging remains completely, frustratingly unrecyclable. Let's aim for the UK to lead the world with a 100% recycling rate.

Petition Closed

NHS supply new lifesaving drugs for Cystic Fibrosis like 11 other EU countries

Gov Responded - 7 Dec 2018 Debated on - 10 Jun 2019 View Janet Daby's petition debate contributions
16 May 2019
closed 1 year, 11 months ago

Children & young adults with CF endure lifelong suffering & early death. They need Orkambi and other precision medicines as they are developed. Sufferers in the EU, US & Australia can access the drugs, but not the UK. Hundreds have died in the 3yrs since these drugs were licensed.

Petition Closed

People found with a knife to get 10 years and using a knife 25 years in prison.

Gov Responded - 14 Mar 2019 Debated on - 25 Mar 2019 View Janet Daby's petition debate contributions

People are scared of the amount of knife crime with apparently very little deterent to stop people carrying knifes.

Petition Closed

Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Janet Daby'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.
