Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill

Published Friday, January 10, 2020

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] 2019-20 was introduced in the House of Lords on 07.01.2020. No date is yet available for second reading

The Bill would bring forward temporary measures to support the delivery of the 2022 Games. A Bill to do this was introduced in the last Parliament but did not complete its parliamentary stages before the 2019 General Election – see the Library Paper, The Birmingham Commonwealth Games [HL] Bill 2019-20 (CBP 8668, 31 October 2019).

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.

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.
