Latest news on the Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill 2016-17

First reading took place on 11 January. This stage is a formality that signals the start of the Bill's journey through the Lords.

Second reading - the general debate on all aspects of the Bill - and all remaining stages, is scheduled for 25 January.

This Bill is known as a "Money Bill". The House of Lords cannot amend Money Bills so committee stage, report stage and third reading are just formalities.
