MPs debate health inequalities report

13 November 2009

Kevin Barron MP, Chairman of the Health Committee, opened a debate in Westminster Hall on his Committee's report published earlier this year on Health Inequalities, and the Government's Response

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 - a report from a select committee.
