Latest news on the High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill 2017-19

The High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill is a hybrid bill presented to Parliament by the Government.

The Bill was introduced to the House of Commons and given its First Reading on Monday 17 July 2017. This stage is formal and takes place without any debate.

On 12 September 2017 both Houses assessed whether the Promoters of the Bill had complied with Private Business Standing Orders 4 to 59.  This link will take you to the broadcast of those proceedings.  The Standing Orders Committees of both Houses will now meet to decide whether to dispense with the Standing Orders which had not been complied with purely in respect of time (these are technicalities which are impossible for a hybrid bill to comply with). 

What happens next?

MPs will next consider the Bill at Second Reading. The date for second reading has not yet been announced.
