On 20 January 2010, the House of Commons was asked, under the Ten Minute Rule motion, to give leave for this Bill to be introduced.  The sponsor was allowed 10 minutes to support the Bill and there was ten minutes for other MPs to comment.  The House agreed and the Bill was read a first time. 

Private Member's Bills are often not printed until close to a Second Reading debate.  If the text of the Bill is not available on these pages and you want information about the Bill then you would need to contact the Member sponsoring the Bill.
