Latest news on the Space Industry Bill [HL] 2017-19

The Bill was considered at Report Stage and Third Reading on Tuesday 6 February 2018 and passed with amendments. It was then returned to the House of Lords for any amendments made by the second House to be considered, a procedure known as ping pong.

However, a Message has now been sent to the Lords requesting that they will return the Bill because the privilege amendment made to the Bill in the Lords was not removed in the Commons.

When the Bill has been returned and amended accordingly, it will be sent back to the Lords again.
