May all (y)our efforts bring about the changes we’re hoping to see!
The previous administration promised a response by the Government as soon as there are at least 200 signatures.
From The Register: A Cabinet Office spokesman told us in November 2010 that the government had already “committed” to pushing for a formal debate in Parliament for any petition that draws more than 100,000 signatures from the British public. The petition with the most signatures would then be tabled as a bill.
