The House of Commons convened for the particular purpose of discussing in detail a new Bill that has passed its Second reading. This is not a debate, as such, and no vote is taken. Its purpose is to allow the proposal of technical and detailed improvements in the Bill. In practice this procedure is used only occasionally; mostly the Committee stage is carried out by a Standing committee.
