I was surprised the bill passed so easily. The next stage is to discuss amendments to the bill and vote on them. The bill has passed its first hurdle but the House of Lords will vote it down when it gets to them. The step after that is for the House of Commons to vote again and if they do, the Lords can't veto it.
