This week in the Lords (6-7 November) – the preview

Yes, another week, albeit a short one, and I can’t honestly say that it will be a gripping one.

Monday sees the second day of the Committee Stage of the Data Protection Bill. This stage doesn’t usually see anything more than probing as to the Government’s intent, plus the airing of Opposition concerns, but it will be interesting to see what Lords Clement-Jones and Paddick have to raise.
