Watch MPs put forward a case to the Backbench Business Committee for House time to debate their selected subjects.

The Backbench Business Committee meets weekly on Tuesdays to consider requests for debates from any backbench Members of Parliament on any subject.

The Committee then has to decide how to allocate the limited Parliamentary time it has at its disposal. The Committee's meetings are always conducted in public and can be watched on Parliament TV.

Byron Davies Beer duty
Lucy Powell & Nicky Morgan Social Mobility Commission State of the Nation report
