Debate on dental services in Oxfordshire

19 May 2009

Oxford West and Abingdon MP, Dr Evan Harris, opens Westminster Hall adjournment debate on dental services in Oxfordshire

An adjournment debate is simply a way in the Commons of having a general debate without requiring the House to vote.

At sittings in Westminster Hall on Tuesdays and Wednesdays there are two one-and-a-half hour debates and three half-hour debates. The one-and-a-half hour debates are intended to be more general involving a number of MPs.

Each government department is available to respond to debates only every other week, according to a rota.
