Will online petitions help improve laws?
A plan to allow popular online petitions to be debated in Parliament within a year has been given the go ahead by the government. Should online petitions be given parliamentary time?
Ministers will seek agreement with the authorities, including the House of Commons Procedure Committee, to give the petitions parliamentary time.
Petitions receiving most support - probably over 100,000 signatures - would be debated, with some possibly becoming bills.
But Labour said the plans would mean "crazy ideas" being discussed by MPs.
Is it important to debate online petitions in Parliament? How else could laws be improved? Do you agree with Labour - would MPs end up debating "crazy ideas"? Will the plan improve our laws?
