Peers completed a third day of report stage debate on the Crime and Courts Bill on 10 December 2012.
The bill proposes to establish the National Crime Agency (NCA). The new agency will take over the work of bodies including the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) and the UK Border Agency; and will also cover sexual abuse and exploitation of children and cyber crime.
The bill is also intended to improve road safety by introducing a new drug-driving offence.
The bill, which started in the House of Lords in May, received eight days of scrutiny at committee stage.
Earlier peers passed a government amendment to allow more legal protection for householders who react with force when confronted by burglars.
Members of the Lords voted by 206 to 55, a majority 151, in favour of the government proposals to raise the bar higher than the current "proportionate" force test.
