Disabled Persons (Independent Living) Bill

22 April 2009

The Disabled Persons (Independent Living) Bill continued its journey through the Lords on 21 April.

If no changes are suggested to a Bill the committee stage is dispensed with in order to save time. This is formally known as "order of commitment discharged".

As no changes were suggested to this Private Members' Bill, the next stage will be third reading.

Third reading is the final opportunity for Members of the House of Lords to amend this Bill before it goes to the House of Commons.
