MPs debate how to support young people during the recession

15 January 2010

Jim Knight, Minister for Employment and Welfare Reform, introduced a debate in Westminster Hall on supporting young people in the recession.

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 committee.
