Members of the Lords, including a former secretary of state for transport and the Liberal Democrat spokesperson for transport, will discuss the key principles and purpose of the High Speed Rail (West Midlands-Crewe) Bill during second reading, on Monday 9 September.
Baroness Vere of Norbiton (Conservative), parliamentary under-secretary in the Department for Transport, is expected to open the debate on the bill and respond on behalf of the government.
Following second reading, members may consider a ‘carry-over motion’, proposed by Baroness Vere of Norbiton, which would allow the Lords consideration of the bill to continue after a dissolution or suspension of Parliament.
