If you know someone who signed a paper one please encourage them to sign again online. Unfortunately the government are eroding the value of paper petitions, marginalising millions of people who do not or can not use the internet.
If you are not happy about this, we encourage you to write to your MP asking why the government took 15 months set up the epetition site and then launched it just as Stop HS2 reached over 100,000 signatures. Ask them to ask Sir George Young, Leader of the House, who has responsibility for the petition strategy how this has happened and how they can make it fair and recognise public opinion.
