Debate on sexual health in Middlesborough

22 April 2009

Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland MP, Ashok Kumar, opens Westminster Hall debate on sexual health in Middlesborough

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

At sittings in Westminster Hall on Tuesdays and Wednesdays there are two one-and-a-half hour debates and three half-hour debates. The one-and-a-half hour debates are intended to be more general involving a number of MPs.

Each government department is available to respond to debates only every other week, according to a rota.
