Andrew Dismore MP, chairman of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, opened a Westminster Hall debate on the Committee's reports on the human rights approach to policing protest, and the Government's responses. Meg Hillier, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, responded
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 - on reports from a select committee and the Government's responses.
