LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's parliament will on Tuesday debate the government's economic support for businesses and individuals, the opposition Labour Party said on Twitter.

Labour's finance policy chief will use an 'urgent question' debate to ask finance minister Rishi Sunak to make a statement on "economic support available to individuals and businesses during and after the recently announced lockdown", Labour's team in charge of parliamentary business said.

Sunak, or another Treasury minister, would usually speak for the government during such a debate.
