Debate on Iran and global security

09 July 2009

Mike Gapes, Labour/Co-op MP for Ilford South, and chairman of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, opened a debate in Westminster Hall on his Committee's report on Global Security and Iran, and the Government's response.

Westminster Hall adjournment debates allow MPs to consider issues of local or personal interest which rarely have time to be debated in the main Chamber of the House of Commons. MPs can discuss a variety of issues and receive a response from a government Minister.

On Thursdays, the sitting consists of a single debate, either on a topic chosen by the Government, or - as on this occasion - a report from a select committee.
