The Tracker: a guide to the progress of Bills in the UK Parliament 2

United Kingdom

Welcome to the January issue of the Tracker that shows the current status of all 46 bills before Parliament at present. 15 new bills have been presented to Parliament since the last issue of the Tracker (14 December). Parliamentary activity this month has been intense; the following Government Bills are making good progress through the system: the Bribery Bill, the Children, Schools and Families Bill, the Digital Economy Bill, the Energy Bill, the Equality Bill, the Financial Services Bill, the Personal Care at Home Bill and the Video Recordings Bill.

Interestingly, the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions Bill, a Private Members Bill which amongst other things will update the law on Industrial & Provident Societies, is cracking along and having completed its passage through the Lords, will have its second reading in the Commons on 29 January.

Another Private Members Bill, the Mortgage Repossessions (Protection of Tenants, etc) Bill that would require banks to give notice of execution of possession orders to mortgagors has a date set for its second reading on 29 January, which suggests strength of purpose in getting this bill through a very crowded timetable.
