Procedures in the Lords


Comments have been made that Mandy used Wednesday to bury bad news by introducing the Royal Mail bill a day before it is published.

The facts are simple.  The procedure for bills is different in the Lords to the Commons.  In the Lords, bills are published on the day following their introduction.

The Government announced earlier this week that the bill would be published on Thursday, so the introduction had to happen on Wednesday.

Just thought it would be helpful to point this out.
