The Health Service Safety Investigations Bill [HL] 2019-20 was announced in the Queen’s Speech on 14 October 2019 and introduced in the House of Lords on 15 October 2019. Its Second Reading debate in the House of Lords is due to take place on 29 October 2019
The Library will produce a briefing paper for the Commons Second Reading debate and this page will be updated when it is made available.
The Library's Second Reading paper may be updated as the Bill goes through Parliament; additional papers may also be added to this page to reflect the Bill’s progress.
Help for Members of Parliament and their staff
In addition to writing and updating published papers as bills go through Parliament, the House of Commons Library can assist Members of Parliament and their staff with individual enquiries about bills, particularly on the policy background.
The Public Bill Office (PBO) supports public bill committees. The staff working in the PBO can advise Members of Parliament on tabling amendments to bills and on the drafting of Private Members’ Bills.
