    The LGF Bill returns to the Commons next week on the 31st.  Apart from the review in 3 years time are there any significant Lords amendments that the goverment will be seeking to overturn?

    I don’t think so. No doubt Julian will be able to confirm that.

    Who Knows ? Interesting to see the 31st described as ping pong here http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2012-13/localgovernmentfinance.html .

    I don’t know how rare it is for a Lord from the government benches to do this sort of stuff after a Bill has finished in the Lords http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-20039452 I suspect there will be quite a lot of concern in the commons but whether any of them want to do anything to change the current position ?

    Plenty of amendments here…how long will this take to consider? Will this bill finally get royal assent next week?

    weren’t they all Government amendments with the exception of No 3 ? I suppose MP’s might have a view on the government amendments but I don’t think any of them are particularly contentious. The amendment that might create a bit of ping and pong is No 3 so we should know early on Wednesday how it is likely to play out.

    Yes Julian but thats nother week! Leaving LA’s just 8 weeks to get this through their members when Parliament has taken about 8 months just shows how local government is treated at the mo.
