My Lords, yesterday I updated the House on arrangements for consideration today of Commons amendments and reasons on the Judicial Review and Courts Bill and the Nationality and Borders Bill. In addition, we are expecting the Commons to send back a message on the Elections Bill. The House will be asked to consider amendments and/or reasons to that Bill today. The deadline for tabling amendments will be 30 minutes after the message is published. The precise deadline will be displayed on the annunciator.
Should today’s initial proceedings not resolve all outstanding questions on these three Bills, the Commons will deal with them again today. We expect that this House will then be asked to consider their amendments and/or reasons this evening. We will make further announcements throughout the day on the arrangements in this scenario. The Government Whips’ Office will continue to ensure that the latest information on how business will proceed and on deadlines for tabling amendments is circulated, and Members can, of course, speak to my office for advice.
