There will be a Backbench Business Committee debate on International Men’s Day on Tuesday 14 November 2017 at 9:30am in Westminster Hall. The debate is sponsored by Jeremy Lefroy MP.

International Men’s Day has been part of the mainstream annual events calendar in the UK since 2010 (it was first created in 1992 in Trinidad and Tobago) and is marked by 70 countries around the world.  This year, International Men’s Day will take place in the UK on 19 November.

The organisation, International Men’s Day UK, has said that the focus remains on “how we can make a difference to men and boys, and, how we can give men and boys better life chances by addressing some of the issues that affect Men and Boys.”

There have been two previous debates on International Men’s Day in 2015 (Westminster Hall) and 2016 (Commons Chamber).
