Arrangments for Pre-Recess Adjournment Debate: Tuesday 19 July

12 July 2011

The Backbench Business Committee has received notice from 60 Members that they wish to take part in the pre-recess debate on Tuesday 19 July. The Committee has decided to allow the full day for this debate and has grouped these Members and subjects into six parts, as follows:

  • Issues relating to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills
  • Issues relating to the Department of Health
  • Issues relating to the Department for Communities and Local Government
  • Issues relating to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
  • Issues relating to the Home Office
  • General Debate

For the first five parts, a Minister from the department will be invited to respond to the issues raised.

The second part of the debate will enable Members to raise any other subjects. The Deputy Leader of the House is expected to reply to this general debate. The Committee expects each Member to receive a substantive written reply from the department to the points raised unless they are dealt with fully in the Deputy Leader of the House's reply.

The names of those Members who have indicated to the Committee that they wish to participate in the debate are listed below along with the subject they wish to raise. The speaking order will be decided by the occupant of the Chair on the day.

The Committee recommends that the time available on the day should be divided evenly between the Members who have applied to take part in these debates. Each of the first five parts should take less than an hour, leaving up to two hours for the general debate at the end. Backbench Members should expect to speak for about five minutes and Ministers for not more than 10 minutes. Shadow Ministers are not expected to respond to the debate. Members are expected to attend throughout the debate for which they are grouped.
