MPs debate bus services in Milton Keynes

30 June 2010

Iain Stewart, MP for Milton Keynes South, introduced an adjournment debate on bus services in Milton Keynes.

An adjournment debate is a way in the Commons of having a general debate without requiring the House to vote.

There are several different types of adjournment debate. Some allow the Commons to hold a general open-ended debate on a subject or a government policy without reaching a formal decision about it.

Others provide an opportunity for backbench MPs to raise constituency issues or other matters relating to government administration or policy - and to obtain a response from a government minister.
