And... it's a wrap!

This week is the last chance for laws to be finalised. If they don't get the thumbs up from both Lords and MPs by close of play on Thursday, they need to start all over again in the next 'session'. The three big laws left are detailed below. They're all in Commons on Monday. If MPs make a change to them (which they will), they'll be back in the Lords on Tuesday. Possibly even back to MPs Wednesday. All very exciting.

Immigration Bill

The Lords have taken away the 3,000 figure away, so on Monday MPs will probably agree to take some unaccompanied children from camps in Europe.

Government will speak to local authorities. They must have registered in the EU before the current deal with Turkey.

Energy Bill

Final area for Lords and Commons to agree is whether to allow on-shore wind farms to be built, if they were given permission before June 2015. This Labour change sneaked through Lords by just 4 votes.

This bill in general is pretty anti the idea of onshore wind.

Housing and Planning Bill

MPs rejected Lords changes once. They're back in Commons on Monday. Changes include: adjusting plans to make 'rich' pay more for social housing; ensuring new social homes are in same areas as sold homes; and to allow councils to decide how many starter homes to build.
