Domestic Abuse Bill receives second reading

Bill carried over into next parliamentary session

On 2 December 2019 the Domestic Abuse Bill received a second reading in the House of Commons. The Government confirmed that the Bill will be carried over into the next parliamentary session which will commence with the Queen's Speech on 14 October. As a consequence, progress with the passage of the Bill will not be lost and it will not need to be reintroduced in the next session.

The Bill will now be committed to a Public Bill Committee for line-by-line scrutiny. The House determined that proceedings in the Public Bill Committee shall (so far as not previously concluded) be brought to a conclusion on Thursday, 21 November 2019.
