28th May 2010
The Bring Back British Rail campaign’s official online petition hosted on the Number 10 website will be unavailable to sign until it is officially reopened by the new government’s administration once they have decided ‘how best to proceed with the e-petitions service’. We hope this will be soon!
Because of this disruption, our petition’s deadline has been extended until 27 July 2010. As soon as the petition is reopened, the campaign will focus all its attention on collecting as many signatures as possible in the short period before it closes finally on 27 July 2010.
Following the 27 July 2010 deadline, our petition will be submitted to the new government for their official response. Any petition with over 100,000 signatures will be debated in parliament, so that should be our target!
