Another step forward for the EU Referendum Bill

Some positive news from Parliament as, just two days ago, James Wharton’s EU Referendum Bill cleared another hurdle on its (still long and dangerous) path to becoming law. The Committee Stage, which saw some Labour and Lib Dem MPs putting down dozens of amendments in an attempt to frustrate and delay the Bill’s progress, has concluded with the Bill surviving unamended.

The Bill now needs to complete its Report Stage and then a Third Reading in the Commons (Parliament’s website offers an explanation of the process), after which it will pass to the Lords for consideration. No date has yet been set for the next stage, but we will continue to monitor the Bill’s progress – and the MPs that might try to sabotage it!
