Superannuation Bill: report stage

02 December 2010

The Superannuation Bill began its report stage in the House of Lords – further line-by-line examination – on Wednesday 1 December.

Lord Brett (Labour) opened the debate and Lord Wallace of Saltaire responded on behalf of the government.

Members discussed and agreed to amendments to clause 2: Consultations in relation to civil service compensation scheme modifications; and clause 4: Final provisions.

There was a division on an amendment to clause 3: Limits on value of benefits provided under civil service compensation scheme, but the motion was not agreed to.

Further information

Report stage in the Chamber gives all Members of the Lords further opportunity to consider all amendments (proposals for change) to a Bill.

Report stage usually starts 14 days after committee stage. It can be spread over several days (but usually fewer days than at committee stage).
