e-petitions will be taking a break on 30 March 2015 as Parliament prepares for the General Election Find out more
The current Parliament closes on 30 March 2015 to prepare for the General Election in May 2015. It’s not possible to accept any new petitions or provide a Government response to an existing petition once Parliament closes.
Until 30 March 2015 you can still create and sign e-petitions, however they’re likely to be open for less time than usual.
e-petitions will be back following the General Election.

e-petitions are an easy, personal way for you to influence government and Parliament in the UK. You can create an e-petition about anything that the government is responsible for and if it gets at least 100,000 signatures, it will be considered for debate in the House of Commons.
