Petition Action

Stop the use of premium numbers

Additional Information

I am starting this petition to try and get the government to ban the use of premium rate numbers. Hospitals, schools, banks and most government departments use them. They are expensive to call and most organisations using these numbers and you have you listen to long menus before you can speak to a human or get to the option you need. If like me you think it's time companies stop using 0871, 0870, 0844, 0845, please sign this petition.

You can't sign this petition because it was rejected. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!

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.
