Prohibit employers from requiring staff to be vaccinated against Covid-19 - 208,081 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 433,314 - 6,183 added in the past 24hrs)

Make it illegal for any employer to mandate vaccination for its employees. This should apply to all public sector (including the NHS, armed forces, care workers), third sector and all private sector.

The Government responsed to this petition on 25th November 2021 (View Full Response)
Organisations’ practices must be lawful and not discriminate. Government has identified limited settings where there is a public health rationale for making vaccination a condition of deployment.

Remove Clause 9 from the Nationality and Borders Bill - 320,331 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 337,927 - 295 added in the past 24hrs)

Under provisions in Clause 9 of this Bill, individuals could be stripped of their British citizenship without warning. We believe this is unacceptable, and inconsistent with international human rights obligations.

The Government responsed to this petition on 5th January 2022 (View Full Response)
The Government will not remove Clause 9. It is necessary to ensure deprivation powers can be used effectively and will only apply in very limited circumstances. It does not affect the right to appeal.

Legalise assisted dying for terminally ill, mentally competent adults - 32,753 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 213,528 - 2,051 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government should bring forward legislation to allow assisted dying for adults who are terminally ill and have mental capacity. It should be permitted subject to strict upfront safeguards, assessed by two doctors independently, and self-administered by the dying person.

Make it a legal requirement for nightclubs to thoroughly search guests on entry - 174,136 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 175,423 - 17 added in the past 24hrs)

I would like the UK Government to make it law that nightclubs must search guests on arrival to prevent harmful weapons and other items entering the establishment. This could be a pat down search or metal detector, but must involve measures being put in place to ensure the safety of the public.

Debate: This petition was debated in Westminster Hall on 8th November 2021

The Government responsed to this petition on 4th November 2021 (View Full Response)
The law already allows licensing authorities to impose conditions such as searches. Decisions on this should be made locally, taking account of circumstances, and there are no plans to change the law.
Open Petition since 21st December 2021

Repeal Breed Specific Legislation - 101,136 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 149,969 - 329 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government should repeal breed specific provisions in dangerous dogs legislation. We believe these provisions are a flawed approach to public safety and an ethical failing with regards to animal welfare.

The Government responsed to this petition on 13th January 2022 (View Full Response)
Simply repealing the breed specific provisions in dangerous dogs legislation with no other changes would increase the risks to public safety, which the Government is unwilling to do.
Open Petition since 21st January 2022

Revoke the TV licence at the end of 2027 - 4,586 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 143,470 - 1,799 added in the past 24hrs)

We wish the TV licence to be revoked when the BBC's current Royal Charter expires at the end of 2027. From that point the BBC should be funded in a different way, which does not require people to pay for a licence to view live broadcasts.

Renationalise the NHS, scrap integrated care systems, and end PFI contracts - 135,141 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 140,530 - 67 added in the past 24hrs)

We demand the Government restore England’s publicly funded, publicly provided NHS by reversing all privatising legislation, ending ongoing PFI contracts, and scrapping plans for Integrated Care Systems and for-profit US-style ‘managed care’.

The Government responsed to this petition on 23rd December 2021 (View Full Response)
The government has been steadfast in its commitment to the guiding principles of the NHS which mean the NHS is not and never will be for sale to the private sector.

Exempt dogs assessed by experts as safe from breed specific legislation - 127,492 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 127,509 - 7 added in the past 24hrs)

Amend the breed specific legislation to create a clause where by dogs that have been expertly assessed and found to be no more risk to the public than any other breed, to be exempted from breed specific legislation and allowed to live by the same laws as any other dog.

The Government responsed to this petition on 19th October 2021 (View Full Response)
The Dangerous Dogs Act places restrictions on certain types of dogs bred for fighting. Individual dogs can be kept under strict conditions if a court judges that they are not a risk to public safety.

Referendum in the United Kingdom to abolish the Coronavirus Act. - 107,285 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 118,095 - 218 added in the past 24hrs)

The government as a matter of urgency, to bring to Parliament for approval, legislation to have a referendum on the above subject within a maximum of six months.

The Government responsed to this petition on 15th October 2021 (View Full Response)
The Coronavirus Act has proved to be both necessary and highly successful in enabling governments across the UK to support people, and the public services they rely on, whilst combatting the pandemic.

Do not implement proposed new offences for vehicle "tampering" - 110,135 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 113,765 - 32 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government’s modernising vehicle standards proposal suggested new offences for tampering with a system, part or component of a vehicle intended or adapted to be used on a road. This could have a hugely detrimental impact on the UK motorsport and custom aftermarket industry.

The Government responsed to this petition on 21st December 2021 (View Full Response)
The intention of the consultation proposal is to prevent modifications that negatively impact on road safety, vehicle security and the environment.
Open Petition since 5th August 2021

End the Cage Age for all farmed animals - 108,088 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 108,500 - 33 added in the past 24hrs)

Every year across the UK, millions of farmed animals are kept in cages, unable to express their natural behaviours and experiencing huge suffering. These inhumane systems cannot be the future of British farming. The UK Government must legislate to ‘End the Cage Age’ for all farmed animals.

The Government responsed to this petition on 20th August 2021 (View Full Response)
The Government is committed to improving farm animal welfare standards and is currently exploring options for introducing further reforms, including phasing out the use of cages in farming.
Open Petition since 6th August 2021

We demand that the Gurkhas receive equal pensions - 108,161 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 108,323 - 12 added in the past 24hrs)

We are demanding that the government treats Gurkhas fairly and pays them the same pension as other British veterans of the same rank and service. Many Gurkhas joined the Queen’s Gurkha Army believing their pension would sustain them and their families but sadly this has not been the case.

Scheduled Debate: This petition is scheduled to be debated on 22nd November 2021

The Government responsed to this petition on 19th August 2021 (View Full Response)
For most Gurkha veterans the Gurkha Pension Scheme provides a pension at least as good as, and in many cases better than, that given to their British counterparts with identical periods of service.
Open Petition since 23rd July 2021

Protect student choice: do not withdraw funding for BTEC qualifications - 107,506 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 107,506 - 1,504 added in the past 24hrs)

Reverse the plan to withdraw funding for most applied general qualifications such as BTECs and guarantee they will continue to play a major role in the qualifications landscape. Students should not be forced to choose between studying A levels or T levels from the age of 16.

The Government responsed to this petition on 17th August 2021 (View Full Response)
The Government is streamlining and improving the quality of post-16 qualifications. We will fund a range of qualifications in addition to T Levels and A levels, which may include some BTECs.
Open Petition since 9th November 2021

Make the use of free-running snares illegal for trapping wildlife - 51,191 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 107,069 - 530 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government should prohibit the sale, use and manufacture of free-running snares under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, putting them in the same category as self-locking snares, which are already illegal.

The Government responsed to this petition on 13th January 2022 (View Full Response)
The Government recognises that some people consider snares to be an inhumane and unnecessary means of trapping wild animals and will launch a call for evidence on the use of snares.

Provide more funding for stalking advocates for victims of stalking - 105,502 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 105,638 - 13 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government should provide more funding for stalking advocates for victims of stalking. This would help support victims, and should also help the police to investigate cases more thoroughly, potentially helping prevent threats to life.

The Government responsed to this petition on 27th August 2021 (View Full Response)
The Government provided additional funding to stalking charities to help support victims, including funding specifically for advocacy, both this year and last.
