Every year more and more people, animals and wildlife get hurt by fireworks. It’s time something was fine to stop this. There are enough organised firework groups around for us to still enjoy fireworks safely so please help me stop the needless sale of them to the public!

Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Mike Amesbury's petition debate contributions
19 May 2019
closed 1 year, 9 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.

Increase college funding to sustainable levels - all students deserve equality!

Gov Responded - 25 Feb 2019 Debated on - 21 Jan 2019 View Mike Amesbury's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 11 months ago

We call on the Government to urgently increase college funding to sustainable levels, including immediate parity with recently announced increases to schools funding. This will give all students a fair chance, give college staff fair pay and provide the high-quality skills the country needs.

Stop the privatisation of NHS services

Gov Responded - 20 Feb 2018 Debated on - 23 Apr 2018 View Mike Amesbury's petition debate contributions

We call for a ban on the outsourcing (privatisation) of NHS services, and stop the renewal of any outsourcing contracts already signed. Companies should not be profiteering from NHS contracts, when every pound of NHS budgets is desperately needed for more doctors and nurses, and to pay them more.

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.
