Deal with e-petitions within 1 month rather than dragging them on for years

Why do I see so many e-petitions that end at the back end of 2012?

These petitions are the people of this country telling you what issues are affecting us at the moment, and waiting a year before you even consider these issues is not acceptable.

I want to see all relevant e-petitions dealt with within 3 months as any longeer m,akes a mockery of the whole process.

I am willing to allow a maximum of 3 months to collect signatures, please do the same!!

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.

You can't sign this petition because it wasn't accepted for publication. But you can still give your opinion on it here at!

Do you support or oppose this petition?
