The cash grants proposed by Government are only for businesses in receipt of the Small Business Rates Relief or Rural Relief, or for particular sectors. Many small businesses fall outside these reliefs desperately need cash grants and support now.

Gov Responded - 2 Apr 2020 Debated on - 25 Jun 2020 View Theresa Villiers's petition debate contributions

closed 5 months, 3 weeks ago

After owning nurseries for 29 years I have never experienced such damaging times for the sector with rising costs not being met by the funding rates available. Business Rates are a large drain on the sector and can mean the difference between nurseries being able to stay open and having to close.

closed 4 months ago

Zoos, aquariums, and similar organisations across the country carry out all sorts of conservation work, animal rescue, and public education. At the start of the season most rely on visitors (who now won't come) to cover annual costs, yet those costs do not stop while they are closed. They need help.

Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Theresa Villiers'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.

End the export of live farm animals after Brexit.

Gov Responded - 16 Oct 2017 Debated on - 26 Feb 2018 View Theresa Villiers's petition debate contributions

The transport of live animals exported from the UK causes immense suffering. This trade is governed by EU law, not the UK Government.

The Government should plan legislation to ban the export of live farm animals in favour of a carcass only trade and introduce this as soon as we leave the EU.
