Lords Spiritual (Women) Bill

This bill completed all its Commons stages yesterday. First Reading was on 18 December 2014. Yesterday the Commons dealt with an allocation of time motion, the second reading, the committee stage (in a committee of the whole house) and the third reading. As no amendments were made to the bill there was no report stage.

The verbatim Hansard record of the debate is available:
Allocation of time motion
Second reading
Committee stage and Third reading

The bill now goes to the Lords.
