Tabulation issues marred the first day of debating at the 2011 Asian British Parliamentary Debate Championship, forcing organisers at Dhaka's North South University to drop a scheduled round. The third preliminary will now take place tomorrow before 3 other rounds so that the break announcement can still proceed on time. This year's ABP has 76 teams, including those from Binus International and Institut Pertanian Bogor.
The motions on Day 1 are as follows:
R1 THW ban violent sports
R2 TH regrets Myanmar's appointment to future ASEAN chair
