Ministers will debate the merits of the RDR in the House of Commons on 30 November, officials have today confirmed.
Ministers will use the three-hour slot for a full Parliamentary debate on the RDR, including the issues of grandfathering and the appropriateness of exams.
MPs Harriet Baldwin MP and Mark Garnier MP pitched their plan for a detailed ministerial discussion of the rule changes to the backbench business committee earlier this month.
The debate in two weeks time follows an initial half hour discussion on the RDR in the smaller Westminster Hall called by Baldwin last month, the first ever Parliamentary debate on the issue.
Baldwin's office has said it is expecting a high turnout for the three hour grilling after 13 MPs intervened during the October discussion.
Financial Secretary to the Treasury Mark Hoban MP caused anger among IFAs during that debate when he compared the current Level 3 minimum qualification for advisers to that of a McDonald's shift worker.
Harriett Baldwin MP says: "This is a huge milestone for the many thousands of IFAs across the country who fear their livelihoods will be ruined by the implementation of the RDR.
"I have been campaigning for more than two years on this issue on behalf of IFAs in the West Worcestershire constituency.
She says the timing of the debate allows concerned parties to air the issues in the main chamber before the FSA makes its final recommendations at its next board meeting on 10 December.
The debate is also important to highlight the reduced access to financial advice, especially for people in rural areas, she says.
"I know that many of my colleagues are keen to participate in my debate and I would urge IFAs to contact their local MP to ask them to speak out on their behalf."
