Westminster Hall debates

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 a report from a select committee and on the Government's response.
