Finance Bill 2009
The Finance Bill 2009 has now been published and will go through a number of stages in both the House of Commons and House of Lords before it finally becomes an Act of Parliament.
The second reading of the Finance Bill will take place on Wednesday 6 May 2009. This will be followed by the Committee debates which take place on 12 and 13 May 2009.
The Bill will then go through a similar process in the House of Lords and is expected to become law before the Parliamentary summer recess begins on 21 July 2009.
