05 November 2009

In five short debates in the House of Lords on 4 November, Members discussed a range of issues including: detention and deportation under immigration and asylum law; the Sudanese government; cerebral palsy; the Vision 2020 initiative to prevent avoidable blindness; and BBC programming and humanism.

Questions for short debate - discussions usually lasting from 60 to 90 minutes - can be tabled by any Member of the Lords to ask the Government a question on a topic of interest. A spokesperson replies to the question on behalf of the Government.
