The passage of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill's journey through the Lords was completed on 29 April with its third reading
Suggested changes to the Bill covered several clauses, including provisions for the welfare of children.
Third reading is a Bill's final stage in the Lords and is the last opportunity for Members to make changes. Amendments at this stage aim to improve the wording of the Bill and to clarify remaining uncertainties.
The Bill moves to the House of Commons for consideration.
