Digital Economy Bill - Commons Reason and Amendments (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: My Lords, about a year ago I introduced a Private Member’s Bill that was too low in the ballot to have any chance of being debated or passed.

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: My Lords, I suspect that this is au revoir and not adieu to the Bill, if one is still allowed to use French in this House.

However, I am not clear whether the Government accept this duty or not. My final question, which no doubt he will come to, is this: please can I come and see...
