MPs debate housing and the credit crunch

17 July 2009

Dr Phyllis Starkey, Chairman of the Communities and Local Government Select Committee, introduced a debate in Westminster Hall on the Committee's report on housing and the credit crunch, and the Government's response. Housing Minister, Ian Austin, responded to the debate.

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 report from a select committee - as on this occasion - or a topic chosen by the Government.
