The petition needs 100,000 signatures to enable it to be debated in the House of Commons. The petition currently has 129 signatures.
I have copied this from the Direct Gov petition page:
"A new minister for autistic spectrum disorder people
Responsible department: Department of Health
To develop a national policy and direction for people on the Autistic spectrum disorder from birth or diagnoses into adulthood With a minister and department to oversea service in education, health, social services,and social security to enable a national policy to ensure everyone on the spectrum and their Carers are not excluded because of a post code"
If you know someone with autism please sign it and ask everyone you know as well. Thankyou in advance.
