Petition the government online

You can petition the government online using the new e-petitions system. You can also submit a paper petition direct to the House of Commons.


e-petitions is an easy way for you to influence government policy in the UK. You can create an e-petition about anything the government is responsible for.

If your petition gets at least 100,000 signatures it will be eligible for debate in the House of Commons.

Parliamentary Petitions

The e-petitions system isn't intended to replace the current paper-based system of public petitions in the House of Commons.

More information about the paper-based Parliamentary Petitions can be found by following the link below.
