What comes next?

Step 1

Once our petition has closed, we’ll present it to an MP or group of MPs on the steps of Parliament - no matter which party governs.

Step 2

The Petitions Committee (a Parliamentary Select Committee made up of a group of MPs from different parties) will gather more information and evidence before considering our petition.

Step 3

Once the Petitions Committee has finished considering the petition, they will publish a report on the findings. The Government will then have 60 days to respond to the recommended actions.

For more details on this process, see here.
