Some occasions when HIV/AIDS has been the subject of debate, oral questions, Early Day Motions, or Select Committee Reports in the UK Parliament are listed below.

This is not an exclusive list, and contains references to occasions when HIV/AIDS has been the main subject of the debate, question, EDM or report. For debates from earlier years search the Parliament website.

In addition to the above, HIV is frequently mentioned in Parliament in debates on, for example, Africa or sexual health, even though the debate deals with a broad range of issues.

There are also often written questions to Ministers, especially in the Department of Health or the Department for International Development. The APPG publishes a list of questions with their answers at the end of the parliamentary year. You can find the latest full year of written written questions asked by the Lords and written questions asked in the Commons here.

The APPG does keep a running record of such written questions throughout the year and you can email to request a copy.

If you wish to look in more detail visit the Parliament website which contains records of all House of Commons and House of Lords business, including Committees. It also has information about how Parliament works. You can carry out your own detailed searches by going directly to the Search page on the Parliament website.
