29 January 2010

Westminster Hall debates

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 and the government's response.

The usual form is for the committe chairman to open the debate and for the relevant government minister to wind up at the end. On this occasion the chairman, Mr Yeo, opened proceedings on the Committee's report, followed by the minister speaking to the Government's response.
