ALLOW MP'S FREE VOTE ON E PETITIONS
If e-petitions are to make the British public, once again, feel apart of politics, then the party leaders and whips should allow free voting on all the e-petitions.Allow MP'S to vote freely!!!!!
This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:
E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:
- party political material
- commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
- issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
- correspondence on personal issues
E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.
The following explanatory notes have been added:
Whipping is a matter for political parties and not HM Government
