Parliament’s back! Woop!

With Parliament on a break this week, the future of the EU has been dominating headlines. Even Emma Thompson weighed in - to a mixed reception. Remember to keep an eye out for our coverage of the EU referendum, we'll wade through the endless nonsense so you don't have to.. In the meantime, here’s our pick of the bills that will be discussed next week.
Trade Union Bill

Strikes have been in the public eye a lot lately. This bill makes strikes harder as more people have to vote for them. It also changes rules about picketing and political funding.

Critics say it takes power away from workers, threatens democracy and that striking is a human right.

Scotland Bill

The SNP argue that these powers don't go far enough to fulfil the promises. Scotland still doesn't have full control over child and working tax credits.

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill

Private Member’s Bills don’t usually get this far. This passed the Commons and will be discussed in the Lords next week.

It aims to encourage doctors to try new and innovative treatments, though some are worried about the side effects.
