Petitioning dates and Hybrid Bill committee

This morning, at a legal briefing for MPs, the dates for HS2 petitioning and the names of the Hybrid Bill Committee were given.

Petitioning dates vary for different groups. Businesses and local authorities (apart from parish councils) will be able to submit petitions from 29 April to 16 May 2014. Everyone else will be able to submit them from 29th April to 23 May.

The HS2 Hybrid Bill Committee have been named as: Henry Bellingham, Peter Bottomley, Ian Mearns, Yasmin Qureshi, Robert Syms, Michael Thornton.

In addition, Cheryl Gillan has tabled a motion asking for a second day of debate for the second reading: this is currently scheduled just for the afternoon that Parliament returns after the Easter recess.
