MPs debate progress of Sure Start programme

16 October 2009

Dawn Primarolo, the Minister for Children, Young People and Families, opened a debate in Westminster Hall on the progress of Sure Start, the Government’s programme to deliver the best start in life for every child by bringing together early education, childcare, health and family support.

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 - as on this occasion - or on a report from a select committees.
