That's where we leave our live text coverage of the Lords today. Peers will take part in second-reading debate on private members' bills for the rest of the afternoon:
- Local Audit (Public Access to Documents) Bill
- Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill
- Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill
- Farriers (Registration) Bill.
Then peers rise for recess, returning on 24 April.
