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.

Sign this petition to Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU It is the largest petition to the government ever with over 5 million signatures. The government’s response to it has been totally inadequate, which has led to rumours that the petition has been closed down. This is not the case – it will stay open until 20 August 2019. Please sign and persuade others to sign.
