Business of the House

Volume 803: debated on Tuesday 21 April 2020

Motion on Standing Orders

Moved by

That Standing Order 46 (No two stages of a Bill to be taken on one day) be dispensed with today to allow the Windrush Compensation Scheme (Expenditure) Bill (Money Bill) to be taken through its remaining stages.

My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend the Leader of the House, I beg to move the second Motion standing in her name on the Order Paper. This Motion will allow us to take all stages of the Windrush Compensation Scheme (Expenditure) Bill later today. It is a money Bill and, in keeping with the usual practice of the House, all stages after Second Reading will be taken formally.

I should also flag that there will be a virtual debate on the Windrush compensation scheme on Wednesday 6 May for the benefit of those noble Lords who have followed the party leaders’ advice and have decided not to attend the Chamber today. I beg to move.

Motion agreed.
