Lords PMBs currently before Parliament


Private Member's Bills can be tabled by Members of the House of Lords and follow the Lords Bill Process.

As Commons Private Members' Bills have priority in the House of Commons, Lords Private Members' Bills will only tend to be passed if unanimously supported by MPs.

26 Bills in initial stages

These bills have been laid before Parliament, but have not begun the Bill Process. A Short Title and Long Title (summary) of the Bill will have been provided, though a full text of the Bill may not have been tabled.

For Commons Private Members' Bills, unless a high position on the Order Paper has been secured for the Second Reading Debate (or unanimous consent is expected), it is unlikely that the Bill will progress further from this point. Often only Ballot Bills (which have priority for Second Reading) will have the opportunity to progress.
