The fourth, and final, day of report stage of the Marine and Coastal Access Bill took place in the House of Lords on 1 June

Members of the Lords concluded discussion of possible changes to the Bill, which covered clauses 287-313.

Further line by line examination of the Bill takes place during report stage and allows Members to revisit issues discussed previously. All suggested changes to the Bill can be discussed and votes can take place.

Third reading - a final chance to amend the Bill - is yet to be scheduled.

The Government's Bill covers a broad range of marine issues.
