Step-by-step guide to making an e-petition

What action will be taken

Once a petition has been considered, we will write to the petition author and post the information on the website.

Depending on the petition, this could include:

  • setting out our views about the petition's request.
  • explaining that we will take the action requested in the petition.
  • explaining why we will not take the action requested in the petition.
  • explaining what action we will take, if any, in response to the petition.
  • giving advice about how the subject raised in the petition might be pursued.

We will contact the petition author to tell them what action we have or are planning to take, and will publish this information on the website.
