Poor government response
Les Wallace’s petition has now received its expected poor government response. To be fair, it is quite a quick, poor response.
Therese Coffey and the rest of Defra say ‘No’. In fact they say ‘No, no need’.
I’ll be coming back to this later, probably today, as there are some very interesting aspects to it.
One of the interesting aspects that I have noticed is at the foot of the email that one receives as a supporter of the petition ‘The Petitions Committee will take a look at this petition and its response. They can press the government for action and gather evidence.’. They may need a nudge.
