    Welfare Reform Bill: Second reading

    House of Lords

    14 September 2011

    The debate on the second reading of the Welfare Reform Bill took place in the Lords on 13 September 2011. Lord Freud opened the debate with a speech outlining the Government’s intentions behind reform. Peers expressed misgivings about a number of aspects of the Bill including the benefits cap and the replacement of disability living allowance with the personal independence payment.

    The next stage of the Bill will be the committee stage in the House of Lords. For this stage the Government will be publishing supporting information. This will include one-page notes relating to every regulation-making power in the Bill and illustrative draft regulations for some areas. There will also be updated impact assessments available.
