Westminster Hall debates

Wednesday, 29 February 2012

What is this?

Opened in December 1999, Westminster Hall is aimed at fostering a new style of debate. Sessions are open to all MPs, who sit in a horseshoe arrangement which is meant to encourage constructive rather than confrontational debate.

The meetings are presided over by a Deputy Speaker and there are no votes.
