    Debate pack: BT broadband provision for local businesses

    This page has been prepared ahead of the debate in Westminster Hall on Wednesday 10 March at 1.30pm on BT broadband provision for local businesses. The Member in charge is Helen Goodman. It includes a brief summary and some useful links for further reading. The House of Commons Library prepares a briefing in hard copy and/or online for most non-legislative debates in the Chamber and Westminster Hall other than half-hour debates. Debate Packs are produced quickly after the announcement of parliamentary business. They are intended to provide a summary or overview of the issue being debated and identify relevant briefings and useful documents, including press and parliamentary material. More detailed briefing can be prepared for Members on request to the Library.
