British Parliamentary debates consist of four teams, containing two speakers each, which are divided into two sides that speak for and against the motion.
Due to the style’s origins in British parliamentary procedure, the two sides are called the Government and the Opposition.
Similarly, sides are known as benches, consisting of two teams – an opening team and a closing team.
The teams compete against all three other teams in the round, including against its own opening or closing team, which it is not expected to help.
