Backbench Business Committee: MPs request debates

10 October 2017

Watch MPs put forward a case to the Backbench Business Committee for House time to debate their selected subjects.

Committee weekly meeting

The Backbench Business Committee meets weekly on Tuesdays to consider requests for debates from any backbench Members of Parliament on any subject.

The Committee then has to decide how to allocate the limited Parliamentary time it has at its disposal. The Committee's meetings are always conducted in public and can be watched on Parliament TV.
