Every year across the UK, millions of farmed animals are kept in cages, unable to express their natural behaviours and experiencing huge suffering. These inhumane systems cannot be the future of British farming. The UK Government must legislate to ‘End the Cage Age’ for all farmed animals.

Make lying in the House of Commons a criminal offence - 131,722 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 133,045 - 51 added in the past 24hrs)

The Government should introduce legislation to make lying in the House of Commons a criminal offence. This would mean that all MPs, including Ministers, would face a serious penalty for knowingly making false statements in the House of Commons, as is the case in a court of law.

The Government does not intend to introduce legislation of this nature. MPs must abide by the Code of Conduct and conduct in the Chamber is a matter for the Speaker.

Commission an independent review of childcare funding and affordability - 113,372 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 114,407 - 15 added in the past 24hrs)

We have the second most expensive childcare system in the world. A full time place costs, on average, £14,000 per year, making it completely unaffordable for many families. Parents are forced to leave their jobs or work fewer hours, which has a negative impact on the economy and on child poverty.

Debate: This petition was debated in Westminster Hall on 13th September 2021

The Government responsed to this petition on 23rd June 2021 (View Full Response)
The Government is not currently planning a review of the childcare system. Support is available to help with childcare costs, and the Government monitors the sustainability of childcare providers.

To allow non-prescribed storage of Salbutamol Inhalers in Commercial Kitchens - 99,130 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 111,960 - 1,577 added in the past 24hrs)

In 2014 the Human Medicines Act was amended so that schools could keep emergency stocks of salbutamol inhalers without prescription. Asthma is increasing in the UK and we believe that adult sufferers of Asthma working in high-risk commercial kitchens should have similar life-saving support.

The Government responsed to this petition on 25th August 2021 (View Full Response)
Asthma inhalers are a mainstay of treatment and access to prescribed inhalers can save lives. The Licensing Authority can consider evidence to support a specific exemption to supply controls.

We demand that the Gurkhas receive equal pensions - 106,134 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 109,235 - 22 added in the past 24hrs)

We are demanding that the government treats Gurkhas fairly and pays them the same pension as other British veterans of the same rank and service. Many Gurkhas joined the Queen’s Gurkha Army believing their pension would sustain them and their families but sadly this has not been the case.

The Government responsed to this petition on 19th August 2021 (View Full Response)
For most Gurkha veterans the Gurkha Pension Scheme provides a pension at least as good as, and in many cases better than, that given to their British counterparts with identical periods of service.

Do not require health and social care workers to take covid-19 vaccination - 108,892 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 109,184 - 313 added in the past 24hrs)

We, the people, demand that health and social care workers are given the right to exercise free will in relation to any medical procedure and so to be able to refuse to take the covid 19 vaccination without fear of facing discrimination at work or in wider society.

The Government responsed to this petition on 29th June 2021 (View Full Response)
There is a clear public health rationale for making COVID-19 vaccinations a condition of deployment in care homes in order to protect those who are most vulnerable to severe illness and death.
