Make lying (demonstrable untruths) in the House of Commons a Criminal offence.
We live in unprecedented times and more than ever the public need to know that what is said in the House of Commons is true and not an easily proved false statement. Increasingly we are seeing untruths as a deflection tactic.
Lying in the House of Commons should carry a prison sentence of 10 years
The Government should pass legislation to make the telling of demonstrable untruths in both the House of Commons and House of Lords a criminal offence.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
