      Cheers Harry,

      Caroline's Bill has been for second reading twice before Nov 2012, March 2013 but the previous Bill was talked out by Tory MPs on both occasions thus deferring any debate.
      Together with the Coalition for Economic Justice we went to visit Caroline to discuss the Bill and since then a member of The Professional Land Reform Group (which I Chair) has helped her office write the full Bill with background notes.

      The sponsoring MP has nominated 26 April 2013 for the second reading. As the House is not expected to sit on this day it is unlikely to be debated on this date. The sponsoring MP may choose another day for the second reading.

      This Bill was presented to Parliament on 25 June 2012. This is known as the first reading and there was no debate on the Bill at this stage.
