PMBs and the House of Lords

Once your bill has completed its third reading, it will go the House of Lords. You will need to find a Member of the House of Lords to take charge of your bill there. Like any other bill, your bill must be agreed by the Lords for it to become law. If amendments are made in the Lords, the bill will come back to the Commons, where MPs will consider the amendments. You will need to choose a Friday on which this can happen, but your bill (or another with Lords amendments) will be the first debated that day.
