Minister for Immigration, Damian Green, introduced the report stage and third reading of the Identity Documents Bill in the Commons. The Bill passed its remaining stages

Report stage

The report stage gives MPs an opportunity, on the floor of the House, to consider further amendments (proposals for change) to a Bill which has been examined in committee.

There is no set time period between the end of committee stage and the start of the report stage.

What happens at report stage?

All MPs may speak and vote - for lengthy or complex Bills the debates may be spread over several days.

All MPs can suggest amendments to the Bill or new clauses (parts) they think should be added.

What happens after report stage?

Report stage is normally followed immediately by debate on the Bill's third reading.
