Debate on small businesses and HBOS in Reading

03 June 2009

South East Cambridgeshire MP, James Paice, opens Westminster Hall adjournment debate on the treatment of small businesses by the Reading office of HBOS.

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.
