  1. Remove Church of England Bishops from the House of Lords.

    The government responded

    Changes to the composition of the House of Lords, including Church of England Bishops, are important but, given the very full programme of other constitutional changes, are not a priority at present.

  2. Reverse the decision to allowing fracking under our national parks.

    The government responded

    Our regulations introduce an extra layer of protection, adding to existing protections. They define sensitive areas in which operators cannot frack by prohibiting fracking above 1,200 metres in them.

  3. Mandatory prison time 5 years, for pet theft. Reclassify pets from 'chattel'.

    The government responded

    The current law and sentencing practice deals firmly with offenders who steal domestic pets and the government has no plans to introduce a new specific offence to deal with the theft of pets.
