Parliamentary business relating to London from 1 February to 10 February.
Written questions can be used by MPs or Lords to hold the Government to account, requesting information such as policy detail or statistics.
Oral questions provide an opportunity for MPs and Lords to ask Government ministers questions on the floor of each House. These questions are asked at the start of the day's business in both chambers.
Adjournment debates are a way of having a general debate in the House of Commons without requiring the House to vote. The MP who tabled the subject of the debate will speak first and a Government minister will reply.
Public petitions involve sending a written appeal to an MP, following a set format, which is then presented to the House of Commons by that MP. They can be used to raise awareness of an issue and to request action.
Early Day Motions
Early Day Motions (EDMs) are motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons. Although very few EDMs are actually debated, they can demonstrate the extent of parliamentary support for a particular cause or point of view.
