Petition Action

Make lying (demonstrable untruths) in the House of Commons a Criminal offence.

Petition Details

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

Additional Information

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.
