Overview

How to Search

On this page you can search and view all open, lodged and closed petitions. To find petitions closed prior to September 2011, please use our archive.

Each petition is assigned a petition number, which consists of “PE” followed by five digits (e.g. PE01111). You can search for petitions using the petition number or key words relevant to the petition (e.g. school bus safety).

How to Filter

Our search facilities also enable you to filter your search by a petition’s subject category (e.g. health, transport, environment etc.); the name of the petitioner (e.g. Jane Citizen); or by the petition’s status.

A petition will have one of three status options:

Open” petitions are in the process of collecting signatures online. Anyone is welcome to sign a petition whilst it is open.

Lodged” petitions are those under consideration by the Public Petitions Committee. To view a chronology of the Committee’s consideration of a petition, read the ‘petition history’ on the petition’s webpage. To see when lodged petitions will next be considered by the Committee, check the meeting papers on the Committee’s webpage.

"Closed" petitions are those no longer under consideration.
