News Business and Planning Bill timetable – an update

New legislation being scrutinised by House of Lords

“The important Business and Planning Bill, which establishes a new temporary form of pavement licence and relaxes laws for off-sales in certain circumstances is proceeding at a slower pace through the House of Lords than the single day it took to go through the House of Commons (29th June). With the 3rd and final reading in the House of Lords being tabled for 20th July, and assuming there are no amendments requiring further Commons debate, the Bill might receive Royal Assent (and become an Act) at the end of July.
 
We will of course keep you updated of any developments.”
