Petition Action

End lockdown to prevent further economic damage to the UK’s economy.

Petition Details

The current lockdown needs to be lifted in order for our economy to get moving again. We’re already facing financial hardship due to the lockdown that is in place and by this continuing, more people will lose their jobs, more companies will close and more people will be left destitute.

Additional Information

The government can reopen businesses and allow the people of the UK to return to work by reopening schools and allowing employers and employees to resume their daily required working practices. Employers can take measures to allow for social distancing and employees can wear masks if desired and maintain good levels of hygiene by washing their hands regularly. Staff may also be encouraged to complete their work days over differing periods of the day.
