Four Government and 12 Private Members' Bills were introduced in the House of Lords on 19 November.
First reading of each Bill took place - a formality which signals the start of the Bill's journey through the House of Lords.
Private Members' Bills
Government Bills and Private Members' Bills are known as Public Bills - they change the law as it applies to the general population and are the most common type of Bill introduced in Parliament.
Government ministers propose the majority of Public Bills - those put forward by other Lords are known as Private Members' Bills.
