Hansard 23 April:Column 1203

A private member's Bill to allow health authorities with other agencies to invest in measures to combat fuel poverty to prevent illness ran out of time without being given a second reading.

Introduced by Robert Smith, Liberal Democrat MP for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine, the Health Care and Energy Efficiency Bill returns to the commons on 7 May but is unlikely to become law.

Individual MPs objected to eight private members' Bills, deferring second reading debates and effectively ensuring they stand no chance of making progress. These were: Planning Appeals Bill; Access to Environmental Information Bill; Prevention of Delay in Trials Bill; Streetworks Bill; Recycled Content of Newsprint Bill; Computer Millenniun Non-Compliance (Contingency Plans) Bill; Bus Fuel Duty (Exemptions) Bill; and the Public House Names Bill.
