Rejected petition Preserve Home Made Jam

More details

We request that the recent EU legislation prohibiting the sale of home made jams, chutneys and preserves in re-used containers be repealed. If this legislation is allowed to stand it will affect the income of thousands of charities and destroy a great British tradition.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not responsible for.

Having received 'definitive and authoritative advice from a member of the EU's Environment, Public Health and Food Safety committee', the petitioner has asked the the petition be removed, as it is now redundant.

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