Should people in Scotland and Northern Ireland have the same free speech protections from libel bullies as their neighbours in England and Wales?

organisation: English PEN

Yes I should think so.

The standards of goods and services that are essential, such as food and water, are generally highly regulated. Do you support enforced minimum standards in housing as a precondition of a renting?

organisation: Generation Rent

Not sure. Regulation is all very well if set at the right level.

Governments implement policies that directly and indirectly impact on house prices. Do you think house prices are too high?

YES

To what degree should access to information on the internet be restricted by the state or private companies?

Yes but it probably wont be needed if Land Value tax is brought in.

How would you reform surveillance law, oversight and practice to respect the rights of law-abiding people?

organisation: Open Rights Group (ORG)

Need to repeal most of these surveillance laws. Privacy concerns, and other snooping makes life difficult. We live in the nation with the most cameras . You can barely go out to a town without being filmed and this is wrong.

The right of parents to remain with their children in hospital has been established for over forty years. How would you ensure carers of people with dementia are equally welcome in hospital?

There should be relatives rooms built into dementia wards. There are precious little at present.
