Petitions

The links below are to Scotland for Europe’s statement and a number of UK government petitions. The UK government has to issue a statement on any petition to the government which gets 10,000 signatures and the Petitions Committee has to consider any which gets 100,000 signatures for a debate in Parliament. It is therefore worth signing all those you agree with as a way of keeping pressure on the UK Government.
