The Fisheries Bill 2019-20 was announced in the Queen’s Speech on 14 October 2019. No date is yet available for second reading.
The Library will produce a briefing or material for the second reading debate and this page will be updated when it is made available.
The second reading paper may be updated as the Bill goes through Parliament; alternatively additional papers will be added to this page to reflect the Bill’s progress.
The Fisheries Bill 2017-19 completed its Committee Stage in the Commons in December 2018, but fell at prorogation. The Library briefing The Fisheries Bill 2017-19 provides further information on that bill.
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.
