100,000 signatures in 20 days – thank you!
We are thrilled by the support that our e-petition has received – thank you to all our supporters.
This matter should receive a response from Defra in due course and should be debated in a Westminster Hall debate in the Westminster Parliament eventually. But rather more importantly, the number of signatures, and the speed with which they were amassed (at 5,000 signtures a day), will be noted by politicians in parliaments across the UK.
Although we understand that our e-petition will be closed when parliament is suspended – probably in a week’s time – it is still open for signing until then.
