After getting over 157,000 people signing an e-petition about the Badger Cull, it’s going to be debated in a weeks time, Thursday October 25th.
Earlier the speaker of the house announced next week’s order of business with the following entry: (emphasis is mine)
Thursday 25 October—Presentation of a report by the International Development Select Committee: DFID’s work in Afghanistan. This is expected to last 20 minutes. It will be followed by a debate on a motion relating to the badger cull. The subject for this debate has been nominated by the Backbench Business Committee.
