Latest news on the Bill

The sponsoring MP has nominated 30 March 2012 for the second reading. As the House is not expected to sit on this day it is unlikely to be debated on this date. The sponsoring MP may choose another day for the second reading.

This Bill was introduced to Parliament on 7 December 2010 under the Ten Minute Rule. This allows an MP to make his or her case for a new bill in a speech lasting up to ten minutes. An opposing speech may also be made before the House decides whether or not the bill should be introduced. If the MP is successful the bill is taken to have had its first reading.

This Bill is a Private Member’s Bill. These are often not printed until close to the second reading debate. If the text is not yet available here and you wish to know more about this bill please contact its sponsor, Mr Don Foster.
