Ten Minute Rule Motion

Advertisement

Labour MP Jim Cunningham introduced a bill under the ten minute rule motion to make bailiffs subject to regulation, on 8 January 2013.

Mr Cunningham's bill also seeks to prevent multiple fee charges by bailiffs.

It received an unopposed first reading in the Commons but is unlikely to become law without government support.
