This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government
Petition Drone Bill
Drones – or Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs) – present a huge opportunity for UK businesses and consumers to benefit from improvements in logistics and on-demand delivery services.
Drone robotics for non-military uses is an exciting area of innovation for UK technology companies in a large and open global marketplace. In the UK alone, the number of permissions granted for civilian use of drones in congested areas increased 40-fold between 2006 and 2013.
We request urgent Legislation that will enforce a definitive position for civil drone use. It should encompass safety, data protection and privacy, while preserving an opportunity for the UK to create and derive benefits from this enormously beneficial technology.
We need 10,000 signatures to gain a formal response from the relevant Government Department and 100,000 signatures for this e-petition to be considered for debate by the Backbench Business Committee.
This petition closed early because of a General Election
