This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition A confirmatory referendum on the UK's membership of the EU should be held.
1. There was a margin of 3.8% in favour of leaving the EU. This is within the margin of error.
2. As the first referendum is advisory, Parliament is entitled to ask the electorate to confirm its decision. It is more democratic rather than less to ask for a confirmatory referendum.
