Press Release — Albion Alliance responds to David Cameron’s petition plans.

8th February 2010 – 13:30

David Cameron unveiled plans today during a policy speech to ensure that any petition of 100,000 people would be eligible for debate in Parliament, and any petition with 1 million signatures would result in a bill being tabled in Parliament.

The Albion Alliance see this as a welcome move on the part of the Conservatives towards a more direct form of democracy, we will not let it deflect from the work that we are doing in getting candidates to commit to a personal pledge towards filling the
democratic deficit and obtaining a vote for the public on the important issue of the UK’s relationship with the EU.

Whilst the Cameron plan may result in a debate in parliament or even a Bill raised, there is still the need for a majority of committed MP’s to sign that personal pledge to their electorate to ensure that such a Bill would be successful in its passage through parliament.

The work of the Albion Alliance will continue until such a Bill is successful.

ENDS
