Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Faisal Rashid's petition debate contributions

closed 5 months ago

Schools are having to make difficult choices on how to spend their limited funding as their income has not kept pace with the rise in costs since 2010. All schools are working very hard to “make ends meet” but this is becoming increasingly difficult and verging on almost impossible.

We believe it is the parent’s fundamental right to teach their child RSE topics or to at least decide who teaches them and when and how they are taught. We want the right to opt our children out of RSE when it becomes mandatory in Sept 2020.

We call on the Government to urgently increase college funding to sustainable levels, including immediate parity with recently announced increases to schools funding. This will give all students a fair chance, give college staff fair pay and provide the high-quality skills the country needs.

British citizens should be able to appeal the refusal of a family 'visit visa'

Debated on - 9 Jul 2018 View Faisal Rashid's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 6 months ago

The appeals process for Family Visit Visa was removed on 25 June, 2013 to save costs. My recent personal experience confirmed that the UKBA seem to have cut the process of justice and accountability while cutting their costs. How can this be justified?
Is UKBA now the Judge, Jury and Executioner?

Introduce automatic approval of visit visas for families of British Citizens

Gov Responded - 22 Jan 2018 Debated on - 9 Jul 2018 View Faisal Rashid's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 4 months ago

Family members of UK Citizens shouldn’t have to meet the same criteria as other applicants for a visit visa. Not being a citizen doesn’t make our parent, siblings, children or grandchildren any less a part of our family. The only requirement should be that a British relative sponsors them.

Gov Responded - 3 May 2018 Debated on - 9 Jul 2018 View Faisal Rashid's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 2 months ago

Parents for British citizens are treated differently if they reside in countries outside the EU and are not EU citizens and government has made the settlement of parents under ADR practically impossible so we are looking for a middle ground as it is done in Canada with SUPER VISA

Stop the privatisation of NHS services

Gov Responded - 20 Feb 2018 Debated on - 23 Apr 2018 View Faisal Rashid's petition debate contributions
17 May 2018
closed 1 year, 5 months ago

We call for a ban on the outsourcing (privatisation) of NHS services, and stop the renewal of any outsourcing contracts already signed. Companies should not be profiteering from NHS contracts, when every pound of NHS budgets is desperately needed for more doctors and nurses, and to pay them more.

Every single person who works in public services needs and deserve a pay rise. It’s time for the pay cap to be scrapped, for the government to provide additional funding for public sector pay and for employers to put public sector workers pay up now.
