Petitions – The Scottish Parliament

The Scottish Parliament is in recess from 29 June to 1 September 2024. We will aim to process petitions as fast as we can.

If your petition is seeking emergency action or an urgent policy change, we would advise you to contact one of your 8 MSPs or the Scottish Government directly. Please be aware that the public petitions process is a thorough and often lengthy process and is not designed to respond to emergencies.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
