Palace of Westminster.

What is an opposition day debate?

Opposition Days are a chance for opposition party's to decide on a motion for debate in the House of Commons. In most cases the Official Opposition will choose the topic, but this Thursday we will get to set the agenda and debate an issue of our choosing. We only get to lead opposition day debates a couple of times a year, so we want to ensure we use this to debate the issue which is most important to our members.

We will have three hours to debate the issue and a Government Minister will have to attend to respond to the debate. At the end of the debate we will be able to vote on the motion. If we defeat the Government, the relevant Minister will have to respond to the vote by making a statement to the House of Commons within a maximum time period of 12 weeks.

What could we be debating?
