The timing of the parliamentary discussions has an American context, too. The Commons round table on Tuesday will coincide with the London premiere of “Head Games,” an American documentary based on the book of the same name by Chris Nowinski, a Harvard-educated former professional wrestler. Nowinski has chronicled the long-term effects of head trauma among athletes, particularly N.F.L. players, and is scheduled to be one of the participants in the Commons discussion.
