give all MPs a free vote on e-petitions

when the public has used its democratic vote to support the e-petition it should not expect the leader of a political party to instruct its MPs how to vote, let it be true democracy and let them support their constituants

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.

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