Debate on UK embassy facilities

Conservative MP for Brigg and Goole Andrew Percy led a Westminster Hall debate on sharing UK embassy facilities with Commonwealth countries 12 October 2011.

There are more than a hundred UK embassies around the world, as well as many more smaller British consulates.

Earlier this year the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) announced that more than 400 jobs would be cut from embassies and consulates to meet savings targets.
