Scottish Parliament petition to ban single-use plastics

10 September 2019

Mark Purrett of Portree High School has sent a link to a Scottish Parliament  petition promoted by Stephen Henry, "calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to ban single use plastics across Scotland."  The closing date for signing the petition on line is 30 September.

Whether a petition is debated by the parliament depends on the decision of the parliament's Public Petitions Committee, and not on the number of signatures collected.  Petitions are more likely to be referred to a subject committee of the parliament or to another public body, or the committee may decide to take no action at all.
