Report Stage - also sometimes known as Consideration Stage - is the stage in the legislative process when a Bill as amended in Committee Stage is reviewed.
Stages a bill must pass in both the Commons and Lords
The title of a bill is read out and copies of it are printed but no debate takes place.
A review of a bill that has been amended at committee stage.
The House takes an overview of the bill as finally amended - before passing it on.
Further amendments, and changes to amendments made at Committee Stage, may be made at this time.
All members may speak and vote at Report Stage - unlike the usual procedure at Committee Stage, when only members on the Public Bill Committee can take part.
However, if Committee Stage was taken by a Committee of the Whole House - i.e. all members were able to contribute to the scrutiny of the bill - and the bill was not amended then it skips Report Stage and goes straight on to the next stage, Third Reading.
