This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Petition Debate petitions with over 1,000,000 signature in the main chamber.

Over 6 million people signed a petition that called upon the government to revoke Article 50. The debate held in Westminster Hall was unacceptable given the magnitude of signatures on the petition and should have been heard in the main chamber as should all petitions over 1 million signatures.

The Government set up a petitions website in 2011 and since then few petitions have actually been acted on by the government. The Petitions Committee should have the power to debate these petitions in the main chamber.
