Increase Number of Guests Permitted at Weddings, according to Venue Capacity

Gov Responded - 11 Sep 2020 Debated on - 9 Nov 2020 View Andrew Selous's petition debate contributions
4 Feb 2021
closed 2 months, 1 week ago

Weddings take months and even years of intricate planning. Myself and many others believe the maximum number of guests authorised at wedding ceremonies should be increased. The number of guests permitted at weddings should be calculated according to venue capacity.

Demand the EU & UN sanction Brazil to halt increased deforestation of the Amazon

The government of Brazil led by Bolsonaro favour the development of the Amazon rainforest over conservation, escalating deforestation. Deforestation threatens indigenous populations who live in the forest, loss of a precious and complex ecosystem and a vital carbon store that slows global warming.

Ban the sale of animal fur in the UK.

Gov Responded - 28 Nov 2017 Debated on - 4 Jun 2018 View Andrew Selous's petition debate contributions

closed 3 years ago

Fur farming was banned in England and Wales in 2000, followed by Scotland in 2002. However fur products can still be legally imported from other countries and sold here in the UK. Much of this fur comes from countries that have very weak or no animal welfare laws at all.

Ban the sale of puppies by pet shops & all commercial 3rd party dealers.

Gov Responded - 20 Mar 2018 Debated on - 21 May 2018 View Andrew Selous's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 7 months ago

Removing puppies for sale from litter & mum often creates sick, traumatised, dysfunctional dogs. Puppies should be seen with their mum & transporting them to a different place for sale harms welfare. Regulating commercial 3rd party sales is ineffective to prevent harm & a ban is therefore necessary.

Stop the privatisation of NHS services

Gov Responded - 20 Feb 2018 Debated on - 23 Apr 2018 View Andrew Selous's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 11 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.
