Busy Bees Nursery

The petition of residents of Telford,

Declares that Busy Bees nursery is due to close on 31 August 2018 due to the Land Registry; further leaving 15 weeks for the staff and parents to find new jobs and care for their children.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to reconsider the Land Registry’s decision and to give the nursery extended notice so that this much needed community asset can find a suitable alternative premises.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Lucy Allan.]

Home Education: draft guidance and the consultation

The petition of residents of Chipping Barnet,

Declare that the “Home Education - Call for Evidence and revised DfE guidance” has been written following significant consultation with local authorities and no consultation whatsoever with the home education community; further that the consultation is consequently for little more than show as an intention to implement the content has already been stated: further that it seeks to encourage local authorities to breach the ECHR Article 8 and the GDPR; and further that the report provides no accessible means for a parent to address ultra vires behaviour by their local authority, where many of those authorities already act routinely in an ultra vires manner.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to withdraw the draft guidance and the consultation, until it has put in place an accessible and workable complaints procedure and further has consulted with home educating parents, as it has with local authorities, what the contents should include.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Theresa Villiers.]
