What is report stage?

Report stage gives all members of the Lords a further opportunity to examine and make amendments (changes) to a Bill.

It usually starts 14 days after committee stage has concluded and can be spread over several days (but is generally shorter than committee stage).

Before report stage takes place

Before report stage begins, amendments are gathered together and placed in order, then published in the 'marshalled list'. Updated lists are produced before the start of each day of committee stage.

What happens at report stage?

During report stage detailed examination of the Bill continues. Any member of the Lords can take part and votes on any amendments may take place.

What happens after report stage?

After report stage, the Bill is reprinted to include all the agreed amendments. The Bill then moves to third reading, a further chance for the Lords to discuss and amend the Bill as it nears conclusion.

If the Bill is amended it is reprinted to include all the agreed amendments. The Bill moves to third reading - the final chance for the Lords to amend the Bill.
