Private Members’ Bills

13 July 2009

Members of the Lords discussed the second reading - key principles - of four Private Members' Bills on 10 July.

All four Bills were introduced in the House of Commons first. To become law a Private Members' Bill must go through the same stages in both Houses - as per a Government Bill.

The Bills proceed to committee stage for line by line examination of their content - dates for which are still to be scheduled.
