Rejected petition Don’t change the rules on supermarkets not selling non essential items.

The Welsh government have asked supermarkets not to sell non-essential items during the fire break lockdown. We believe that this is reasonable and stops people spending any additional unnecessary time outside of their household. There may be some clarification required on some items but in general the rules should remain.

These rules are there to protect public health and protect the NHS.

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 calling for this is already collecting signatures:

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
