Commons remaining stages (Report Stage and Third Reading)

MPs were scheduled to debate both the Report Stage and the Third Reading of the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill on Tuesday 27 March 2018. This has now been postponed due to there being three statements and an emergency debate on the EU referendum and alleged breaches of electoral law. The remaining stages will now be debated on a date yet to be announced.

Previously, the remaining stages were originally scheduled to be debated on Monday 12 March 2018 but this was later postponed as a result of two Urgent Questions and four oral ministerial statements being granted on Monday 12 March 2018.
