This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Rejected petition Table a motion for a vote of no confidence in the Government.

The Conservative-DUP coalition (if it is still functioning) has a majority of one. No such government can have the confidence of the people. Let Parliament put this to the test.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about honours or appointments.

We can't accept petitions about appointments, which includes calling for Ministers to be sacked or for a vote of no confidence.

We used to accept petitions that called for a vote of no confidence. However, the Petitions Committee can’t schedule votes of no confidence. This was often frustrating and disappointing for petitioners.

If you're concerned about a particular policy or decision that's the responsibility of Government or the House of Commons, you could start a petition about that.
Petitions calling for action on policy are more likely to be an effective way of achieving the change you want.

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