Petition Action

Make Britain a fairer and more equal country

Additional Information

To tackle Britain’s growing social problems we need a fairer society which offers opportunities, encourages responsibility and eliminates poverty. We call upon the government to:
- Make work pay by supporting a living wage of £7.20 (£8.30 London)
- Tackle fuel poverty, as 24% of households will find it difficult to heat their homes this winter.
- Use progressive taxation to address the culture of excessive corporate pay and bonuses.
- Stop planned cuts to the EMA in England and support a comprehensive jobs fund for all areas of the country.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

This petition is a duplicate of a number of individuals petitions which already appear on the site, on: a living wage, fuel poverty, high pay, EMA and jobs funds. You may wish to consider signing individual e-petitions on these matters or starting your own individual e-petitions on each issue if you feel they are not already suitably covered.
