Community Amateur Sports Club Bill

08 May 2009

Members of the Lords debated a Bill that aims to amend the law to help the operation of amateur sports clubs.

Lord Addington opened the discussion, with contributions from Members with interest and experience in community, recreation, sport and more.

Private Members' Bills can be introduced in the Lords by any Member who would like to change a law. There is no ballot in the Lords. To become law a Private Members' Bill must go through the same stages as a Government Bill.

Line by line examination of the Bill takes place during committee stage - a date for which is still to be scheduled.
