Mark Pritchard secures debate on UK-US relations

Mark_pritchardTomorrow in Westminster Hall there will be a debate on UK relations with America. It has been tabled by Mark Pritchard, MP for The Wrekin.

The 90 minute debate will begin at 11am. Mr Pritchard's office says that it is the first time in nearly a decade that there has been a dedicated debate on the USA in the House of Commons.

Topics expected to be discussed include: bi-lateral relations, anti-Americanism, Iran, Europe and Turkey joining the EU. Other issues may be raised, such as extraordinary rendition, US intelligence activity in the UK and the sharing of intelligence between the two countries.

Mr Pritchard is to be commended for securing this debate. The United States of America matters a great deal to most of us, not least the team at ConservativeHome. Please check out America in the World.
