Summer Adjournment Debate: Tuesday 19 July

23 June 2011

The Backbench Business Committee has decided that the Summer adjournment debate on Tuesday 19 July will follow the format used before Christmas, Easter and Whitsun.

Members are invited to apply to speak on a subject of their choice for no more than 10 minutes, specifying from which Government department they would like a response. Speeches will be grouped into subject areas and, for the departments with the highest number of applications, the relevant Minister invited to respond to the issues raised. This will be followed by a general debate where Members may raise any issue, for which a response will be provided by the Deputy Leader of the House.

Members should apply to the Table Office or email bbcom@parliament.uk to speak in the debate.

The deadline for applications is 6pm on Monday 11 July
