Rejected petition Protect Mental Health and increase the five mile travel restriction

After months of being unable to see family members or friends, many still can’t because they have no friends or family within five miles. Travelling slightly further, up to ten miles, should be allowed. Mental health is also a reason for essential travel.

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

Another petition about lifting travel restrictions in Wales is already collecting signatures:
