Commons debates impact of recession on rural communities

16 June 2009

Nick Herbert MP, Shadow Secretary for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, opened a debate on the impact of the recession on rural communities, on an Opposition motion and a Government amendment

These types of debates are held on what are known as Opposition days which are allocated in the Commons during each parliamentary session to discuss subjects chosen by the opposition parties. Twenty days per session are allocated for these and the opposition parties usually raise questions of policy and administration. They are listed online in the Parliamentary Calendar.
