Lords considers Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) Bill

27 April 2018

The Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) Bill had its third reading, a chance to 'tidy up' the bill and make changes, in the Lords on Thursday 26 April.

This is a private member's bill. A private member's bill is a type of public bill (that affects the public). Private members' bills must go through the same set of procedures as other public bills.

This bill would prohibit unpaid work experience exceeding four weeks.

No changes were made to the bill ahead at third reading. The bill will go to the House of Commons for its consideration.

Lords committee stage: Tuesday 13 February

As no changes were suggested to the bill, a motion was agreed to that both committee and report stages be dispensed with and that the bill progress directly to third reading. This procedure is known as ‘order of commitment discharged’.

Second reading

The Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) Bill had its second reading, the key debate on the draft law's purpose and principles, on 27 October 2017.
