Maria Miller removal from office

Maria Miller should be dismissed from the government in response to her wrongly claimed mortgage expenses; trying to thwart an investigation into her parliamentary expenses claims, and her derisory 'apology' to the House of Commons on 3rd April 2014. The decision of the all-party Standards Committee requiring her to repay only £5,800 should be overturned. The original finding of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards that she should return £45,000 should be implemented without further delay.

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:

Maria Miller should be dismissed from Government - This is a party political matter and not a matter for Government. Finding of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards to be implemented - This is a matter for Parliament not for Government
