Debate on central London businesses

28 October 2009

Cities of London and Westminster MP, Mark Field, opens Westminster Hall debate on rates of taxation for central London businesses.

An adjournment debate is simply a way 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.
