David Steel's 'House of Lords Bill' is due to start its committee stage in the House of Lords this afternoon. The start of the debate could be quite late. It will be preceded by Questions (30 mins); Motions; Two debates, each of two and a half hours; and a Foreign Office Statement.
The bill has attracted 196 amendments. The original two and a hour hours allocated for the committee stage will need to be increased - and progress may be slow. The bill, plus all amendments can be accessed at http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2007-08/houseoflordsbill.html
