Layla Moran MP for Oxford West and Abingdon will be speaking in an adjournment debate in the House of Commons on Parliamentlive.tv on this Wednesday February 25 at 7 p.m. and will be talking about the Oxford Flood Scheme.

An adjournment debate is a way in the Commons of enabling a debate to take place but without a question which the House must then decide

An adjournment debate is held on the motion ‘that the House (or sitting) do now adjourn’.

There is a half-hour adjournment debate at the end of each day’s sitting. They are an opportunity for an individual backbench MP to raise an issue and receive a response from the relevant Minister.

The subject matter of adjournment debates is varied, examples include debates on health services, transport issues and energy supply.
