Rejected petition Allow supermarkets to sell "non-essential" items during tier 4 lockdown

Supermarkets and other essential retailers are being banned from selling nonessential items in this Tier 4 lockdown. It’s almost Christmas and this lockdown was sprung on people with very little notice. Payday is 23 or 24/12 for many people so they now cannot buy presents.

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.

The Petitions Committee is already considering a petition on this issue: Allow supermarkets to sell "non-essential" items during lockdown
