Why was this petition rejected?

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

We can't accept your petition because the UK Government aren't responsible for the issue you raise. Relaxing restrictions introduced during the pandemic is an operational matter for individual institutions.

We could accept a petition calling for the UK Government or Parliament to introduce rules about the maximum time a prisoner can be forced to spend in their cell, if this is something you would like to happen.
