Yes. I think the situation is that if the Lords votes for an amendment its up to the bill sponsor to try to get the commons to reverse it, which Howells may well do. Therefore MPs need either to vote the amendment through or add amendments of there own.

Stand by with tape recorders attached to radio 1 from 8 pm Monday.

PS. The effects of this bill are gradually becoming better known. In the letters column of the Yorkshire post today someone had written - how can requiring a licence better promote live music in this country and the removal of the restriction on secular music in church was not a matter for celebration - who but a madman would ever have wanted such a licence in the first place.
