City of London Corporation Open Spaces Bill

The City Corporation’s Bill on open spaces was successfully revived (without incident) in the Commons and Lords following the General Election. Standing Orders require two days’ notice of Third Reading (the stage which the Bill had reached when the Election was called) and so it was not possible to table it before the House rose. Notice of Third Reading will therefore be tabled on 5 September, the day the Commons returns from the Recess.
