The Committee considered all e-petitions which had reached over 10,000 signatures which had received a government response on or by Friday 15 January. There were no petitions which had reached over 100,000 signatures by this date to consider at the meeting.

Petitions which met these criteria after this date will be considered at the Committee's next meeting on Tuesday 26 January.
