Keighley Petitions

e-Petitions are administered by Parliament and allow members of the public to express support for a particular issue.

If an e-petition reaches 10,000 signatures the Government will issue a written response.

If an e-petition reaches 100,000 signatures the petition becomes eligible for a Parliamentary debate (usually Monday 4.30pm in Westminster Hall).

Petition Debates Contributed

The maximum penalty for failure to stop after an incident is points and a 6-month custodial sentence. Causing death by careless/dangerous driving is between 5-14 yrs. The sentence for failing to stop after a fatal collision must be increased.

The offence of causing 'death by dangerous driving' should be widened to include: failure to stop, call 999 and render aid on scene until further help arrives.

Ensure Water companies treat the sewage they are responsible for. Not discharge it into rivers and water courses. After all what goes into the ocean comes back as the fish we eat.

Current legislation allows for public use of fireworks 16 hours a day, every day, making it impossible for vulnerable groups to take precautions against the distress they can cause. Better enforcement of existing law is insufficient; limiting their sale & use to licensed displays only is necessary.

Chris Packham, Ruth Tingay and Mark Avery (Wild Justice) believe that intensive grouse shooting is bad for people, the environment and wildlife. People; grouse shooting is economically insignificant when contrasted with other real and potential uses of the UK’s uplands.

The Coronavirus Act grants potentially dangerous powers including to detain some persons indefinitely, to take biological samples, and to give directions about dead bodies. Powers last up to 2 years with 6 monthly reviews, and lockdown powers could prevent protests against measures.

The Government should allow golf courses to remain open during the second lockdown, and any future restrictions. Shops and clubhouses can close, but courses should be allowed to remain open, with social distancing in place.

Consider keeping gyms open during lockdown because so many people have mental health and stress and they need something to do to take their mind off it closing all fitness facilities can affect us pretty badly.

Urgent call for the government to close all nurseries and early years settings in light of the new lockdown to protect early years staff.

We want the government to recognise the importance of gyms, health clubs, leisure centres and swimming pools in empowering people to look after their health and stay fit and for them to open first as we come out of lockdown.

We're also calling for government to fund a Work Out to Help Out scheme.

The Government is refusing to release official research on the characteristics of grooming gangs, claiming it is not in the “public interest”.

We, the British public, demand the release of the official research on grooming gangs undertaken by the Government in full.

The Home Secretary said what happened to victims of child sexual exploitation gangs was “one of the biggest stains on our country’s conscience.” Last year local authorities identified 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation. We want an independent public inquiry into Grooming Gangs.

Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
22nd Feb 2022
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps he is taking to support the UK’s manufacturing sector.

Decisions about investment are for private enterprise, with government support through initiatives like Made Smarter and Help to Grow. We are providing a competitive business environment for British manufacturers – attracting investment and securing new high-value jobs in our industrial heartlands.

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps her Department is taking to ensure the quality of bathing waters.

Our Storm Overflows Discharge Reduction Plan requires water companies to improve all storm overflows discharging into or near designated bathing waters by 2035. The Environment Secretary has also demanded an action plan on every storm overflow in England.

The Environment Agency monitors all bathing waters in England with action plans in place at all ‘poor’ waters. Last year 93% of bathing waters were classified as ‘good’ or ‘excellent’, up from 76% in 2010.

Rebecca Pow
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)
15th Jul 2020
What steps her Department has taken through the Yemen 2020: High-Level Pledging Event for the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen held in June 2020 to provide support to people suffering as a result of the conflict in that country.

The UK committed to provide £160m at the 2020 Yemen Humanitarian Pledging Conference, bringing our contribution to almost £1bn since 2015. By the end of July, we will have disbursed over 50% of our funding, helping the UN and NGOs tackle the spread of COVID-19 and meet urgent humanitarian needs. Ultimately, only a political settlement will address the humanitarian crisis. We urge all parties to engage constructively with Special Envoy Martin Griffiths.

James Cleverly
Home Secretary
26th Apr 2022
What recent discussions she has had with her international counterparts on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

UK is leading the international campaign to rally support for Ukraine, condemn Russia’s invasion, debilitate the Russian economy, cripple Putin’s war machine and isolate Russia on the world stage. Since the invasion, the Foreign Secretary has used NATO and G7 meetings to push for more defensive and economic support for Ukraine and broader and deeper sanctions to ensure that Putin fails.

James Cleverly
Home Secretary
4th Jun 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, whether under covid-19 lockdown measures landlords of houses in multiple occupation are able to move tenants into properties where other tenants are residing.

On 13 May we announced that anyone in England could now move home as long as they followed the advice at

This includes those moving into an occupied House in Multiple Occupation (HMO): during viewings, HMO tenants should stay out of indoor common areas, such as kitchens, bathrooms or sittings areas. They could remain inside their own private room with the doors closed.

Tenant safety should be landlords’ and letting agents’ first priority in this or any other move.

9th Nov 2021
What recent discussions he has had with the Sentencing Council on sentencing guidelines for violent and sexual offences.

The Secretary of State meets with the Chairman of the Sentencing Council periodically to discuss a range of relevant matters, and has a representative attend Council meetings.

The Council has issued sentencing guidelines for a wide range of violent and sexual offences. While the Council is independent of Government, it is required to consult the Lord Chancellor on guideline development.

James Cartlidge
Minister of State (Ministry of Defence)
3rd Nov 2020
What steps HM Courts and Tribunals Service is taking to tackle the backlog of criminal court cases.

COVID-19 has been an unprecedented challenge for the criminal justice system but HMCTS has worked closely with the judiciary to keep courts open and cases flowing through the system.

HMCTS has led the way internationally in continuing justice; restarting jury trials ahead of all other comparable systems.

We continue to make significant progress on Criminal Courts Recovery. Since August, magistrates’ courts have been consistently completing more cases than they are receiving, dealing with over 21,000 cases each week and tackling the backlog.

In the Crown Court, we’re listing over 150 jury trials and conducting thousands of other hearings each week.

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what steps his Department is taking to promote Northern Ireland's place in the Union.

This year my Department has led the Government’s programme to mark the 25th anniversary of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement, which demonstrated the progress Northern Ireland has made as an integral part of the United Kingdom to people across this country and around the world.

Next week’s landmark Investment Summit will showcase the expertise and talent that exists in Northern Ireland and highlight its global attractiveness as a place to invest or start a business - both in its own right and as an integral part of the United Kingdom.

Chris Heaton-Harris
Secretary of State for Northern Ireland
8th Feb 2023
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what steps his Department is taking to mark the anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

The 25th anniversary of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement heralds an extraordinary achievement for Northern Ireland.

We have already announced the first part of our anniversary programme: an education initiative with the National Archives to inform young people across the UK of the journey to the Agreement and Northern Ireland’s transformation since.

The Government is committed to marking this historic occasion appropriately and sensitively, in a manner that speaks to the whole community and that enables us to look forward to a more peaceful and prosperous future.

Chris Heaton-Harris
Secretary of State for Northern Ireland
9th Dec 2020
What steps his Department is taking to strengthen the Union.

This Government has always stressed the importance of the Union.

The recent spending review showed this Government’s commitment to investing in all parts of the UK, from city and growth deals, to driving the development of innovative technologies across Scotland.

Secretary of State for Scotland
