The proposed Human Rights Act reforms must be withdrawn. The Government must not make any changes to the Human Rights Act, especially ones that dilute people's human rights in any circumstances, make the Government less accountable, or reduce people's ability to make human rights claims.

The Government responsed to this petition on 17th March 2022 (View Full Response)
This Government was elected with a manifesto commitment to update the Human Rights Act. We have published a consultation on our proposals, which closes on 8 March 2022.

Automatically suspend PR rights of parent guilty of murdering the other parent. - 126,955 Signatures

Provide a mechanism within existing legislation whereupon a person with parental responsibility (PR) is found guilty of murdering the other parent with PR, has PR automatically suspended throughout the duration of the term of imprisonment of the aforesaid person convicted.

The Government responsed to this petition on 16th June 2022 (View Full Response)
The court can limit the exercise of parental responsibility, if in the best interests of the child. In the most serious cases this can effectively amount to removing all parental powers and authority.

Replace the real bearskins used for the Queen’s Guard’s caps with faux fur - 106,095 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 106,290 - 42 added in the past 24hrs)

There is no excuse for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to continue to effectively fund the slaughter of bears for ceremonial headgear since an indistinguishable alternative has been produced, which is waterproof, and mimics real bear fur in appearance and performance.

The Government responsed to this petition on 11th February 2022 (View Full Response)
Currently we have no plans to end the use of bearskins. Bear pelts that are used are the by-products of a licensed cull by the Canadian authorities to manage the wild bear population.

Make it a legal requirement for drivers to stop & report collisions with cats - 70,996 Signatures

Amend legislation to make it a legal requirement for a driver to stop & report accidents involving cats.

The Government responsed to this petition on 22nd February 2022 (View Full Response)
The Government has no plans to make it an offence to drive off after hitting a cat. A focus for this Government is to make roads safer for all users, which will in turn reduce the risk to all animals.
Open Petition since 29th April 2022

Do not reduce staff-child ratios in early years childcare - 63,557 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 66,309 - 23 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government should not reduce the existing adult-child childcare ratios as has been suggested. There are surely better ways to reduce the cost of living – potentially endangering children in trusted care is not how it should be done.

The Government responsed to this petition on 17th May 2022 (View Full Response)
We will consult in the summer on moving to the Scottish ratios for two-year-olds, from a ratio of 1:4 to 1:5. We will engage fully with the sector and parents/carers on this proposed change.

Fund the drug bevacizumab (Avastin) on the NHS to treat colorectal cancer - 13,392 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 64,065 - 1,394 added in the past 24hrs)

NICE has previously reviewed Avastin (bevacizumab) as a treatment for colorectal cancer and recommended it should not be offered on the NHS. The drug’s patent has since ended, which has reduced the cost. We request that this drug now be made available on the NHS for all colorectal cancer patients.


Open Petition since 19th April 2022

Introduce independent body to enforce the ministerial code on ministers. - 52,228 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 55,846 - 33 added in the past 24hrs)

It is clear that our democracy is broken and there is no accountability to the people in the highest form of Government. There needs to be a body which has the power to enforce the ministerial code on Ministers.

The Government responsed to this petition on 15th June 2022 (View Full Response)
The Government is accountable to Parliament and the British people. The Prime Minister issues and upholds the Ministerial Code in line with his position as head of Her Majesty’s Government.
