Dear Anthony Bennett,

You recently signed the petition “Repeal the 1972 European Communities Act immediately on EU Referendum OUT vote.”:
https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/125333

The Petitions Committee has scheduled a debate on six petitions relating to the UK's exit from the European Union, including this one.

The debate will take place on Monday 17 October at 4.30pm in Westminster Hall.

You can watch the debate live on Parliament TV: http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Commons

The six petitions that will be debated are:

E-petition 133618: "Invoke article 50 of the Lisbon treaty immediately"
E-petition 125333: "Repeal the 1972 European Communities Act immediately on EU referendum out vote"
E-petition 123324: "The 23 June should be designated as Independence Day, and celebrated annually."
E-petition 154593: "Not to allow freedom of movement as part of any deal with the EU after Brexit"
E-petition 133767: "Ask the Government not to invoke article 50 of the Lisbon treaty"
E-petition 133540: "Let Parliament decide whether or not we remain a member of the European Union"

What will happen?

Paul Scully MP, a Member of the Petitions Committee will open the debate. Other MPs will then take part.

MPs can discuss one or more of the six petitions and, if they wish, ask questions about the government's position on the issue or press the government to take action. A government minister will respond to the points raised at the end of the debate.

Petition debates in Westminster Hall cannot directly change the law or result in a vote to implement the request of a petition. They are a way to help raise the profile of a campaign and could influence decision-making in Government and Parliament.

Other recent work related to your petition in Parliament:

You may also be interested to know that on Wednesday 12 October, MPs debated Parliamentary scrutiny of leaving the EU.

You can watch the debate on Parliament TV: http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/9da7b790-789f-46f3-8fbd-b0cc29e949fb?in=12:56:50

You can read the debate on the Hansard website: https://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2016-10-12/debates/F327EC64-3777-4D40-A98D-BEC2E11763A2/ParliamentaryScrutinyOfLeavingTheEU?utm_source=petitions

Who are we?

We are a group of cross-party MPs called the Petitions Committee. We are independent from Government. You can find out more about us on our website: http://www.parliament.uk/petitions-committee/role

Thanks,

MPs can discuss one or more of the six petitions 

All these petitions got the required signatures.

"One or more".

Not all of them?

I would say these two are the most likely, especially the last one.

E-petition 133767: "Ask the Government not to invoke article 50 of the Lisbon treaty" 
E-petition 133540: "Let Parliament decide whether or not we remain a member of the European Union"

Actually, I'm wondering how this one got the required number of signatures.

Was that a genuine petition?

Hardly one to capture the public imagination.

I don`t see how it can be genuine because `parliament` is merely a representative of the people - they are not superior to the people.  The members of said parliament have been elected by the people to do the peoples` bidding.
