What will the outcome be?
Petition debates in Westminster Hall cannot directly change the law or result in a vote to implement the request of the petition. Creating new laws, or changing existing ones, can only be done through the parliamentary legislative process which involves a number of debates, and detailed consideration of the law in draft, in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. However, this debate has a vital role in helping raise the profile of the campaign and could influence later decision-making in Government and Parliament.
