Law Commission Bill: committee stage

19 May 2009

The Law Commission Bill continued its journey through the Lords on 18 May

As no changes were suggested to the Bill the committee stage was dispensed with in order to save time. This is formally known as "order of commitment discharged".

The next stage will be third reading, the final opportunity for Members of the House of Lords to amend this Bill before it goes to the House of Commons.
