Stephen O'Brien, Shadow Health Minister, introduced an Opposition Day debate in the Commons on dementia services and care of the elderly. Phil Hope, Minister of State at the Department of Health, responded to the debate
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 set aside for these and the opposition parties usually raise questions of policy and administration. They are listed online in the Parliamentary Calendar.
