The Backbench Business Committee is responsible for scheduling debates on 35 days during the current session, at least 27 of which will be debates in the main Chamber of the House of Commons, with the remainder to be taken in Westminster Hall.
The Committee has determined that the following business will take place in backbench time:
Thursday 23 June in the Chamber
Motion relating to review of congenital cardiac services for children (Member in charge: Stuart Andrew).
This subject is one in which many Members have a constituency interest and the proposal for a debate was supported by a significant number of backbench Members on both sides of the House.
Motion relating to wild animals in circuses (Members in charge: Mark Pritchard, Jim Fitzpatrick and Bob Russell).
The Committee was told that this was a topic of great concern both within and outside the House and that a debate would be appropriate in the light of the current consultation by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
