Today in the House of Commons, MPs are to take part in a general debate on the potential future free trade agreements and the Australia, New Zealand, US & Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.

The debate is expected to commence after the Business Statement from the Leader of the House.

Transcripts of proceedings in the House of Commons Chamber are available in Hansard online three hours after they happen.

What is a general debate?

General debates give MPs an opportunity to discuss a topic - chosen by the Government - in the Chamber of the House of Commons. Members take it in turns to speak and there are rules and conventions that are followed.
