e petitions

Parliament sets the bench mark when it comes to debate and argument for all matters democratic. How can any constituent be expected to present a case for serious discussion by Parliament in a mere 1000 words? I petition the House to change to format of e petitions to a summary of 1500 words with an unlimited support document on the basis that accuracy is more important than brevity. Any one that writes a rambling inaccurate support document is going to get the response it deserves. A well written document will aid the house to judge properly.

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:

You state in your petition that you are petitioning 'the House to change the format of e-petitions to a summary of 1500 words...' Therefore this is a matter for the House not HM Government

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