Free vote for MPs in a ballot on whether Britain should have a Referendum on the relationship with the EU

I propose that ALL MPs must be given a free vote (no Whipping by Parties) in a Ballot.
A pre-requisite is that MPs should by whatever means (local referenda or local ballot) find out what their constituents want and vote in accordance with the wishes of their constituency and provide true democracy.

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
