Third reading

This is the final vote on the bill before parliament.

Should a Bill have passed through all the previous stages then it is unlikely that the bill will fail at this late stage.  It is almost a formality for this reason.  As a result a further debate on the Bill will only come about in the House of Commons if at least 6 MP's request such a debate.

In the House of Lords amendments are sometimes made during this stage. 

This is the final vote on the Bill before Parliament.
