This is a big change from last year when the Lords with a huge majority voted to let hunting carry on as before.
But MPs voted on Monday for an outright ban.
Most ministers, including Prime Minister Tony Blair, voted to totally ban fox hunting in England and Wales.
And the final decision is still up to the government.
But they want MPs and the Lords to vote to help them decide what should happen to the controversial tradition of hunting.
There are three options to choose from:
- Ban it totally
- Continue with tighter controls (the 'middle way')
- Continue unchanged
