Rejected petition The Junior Doctors new contracted hours & holiday should be enforced on all MPs

If Doctors are expected to work 7 days a week, of which Saturday is deemed a sociable working day in order to improve public safety, then so should MPs. Government officials should also not be allowed an extended summer break or time off during 'high demand' periods such as Christmas.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

MPs do not have contractual hours or any formal entitlement to holiday. We're therefore not sure what action you would like to be taken.

If you would like the sitting hours of the House of Commons to be changed, you could start a petition asking for that.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
