Forthcoming Business

Giving details of the week before the recess, the Leader said that on Monday, July 24, John Hutton would lead for the Government on the second reading of the Welfare Reform Bill which, he said, would be treated as a "carry over" measure and continue through into the next parliamentary session. He pointed out that there was a one-year time limit for getting measures through under the "carry over" principle. On Tuesday, MPs would debate a motion on the retirement of the Clerk of the House, followed by Lords amendments to the Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (David Hanson). The final business would be a Motion for the summer recess adjournment.

On the return of the House, October 9, MPs would debate remaining stages of the Road Safety Bill. The second reading of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Bill would be on October 10. This measure, which had been quite long in gestation, was introduced formally today. It would the second "carry over" measure of this session. It fulfilled commitments in the Government’s manifesto and also in the Warwick Agreement. It was an important Home Office measure.
