For the sake of mental health of Wales these areas should now be considered one of, if not the most important aspects
It is a well known fact that physical fitness and exerecise of all activities is renowed to help with mental health and well being and this should be considered before or as at the same time as pubs cafes and bars to have a happy medium between the too and help combat addiction
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.
