Clear the Lobby: What laws are MPs voting on this week? – w/c 25th June

Welcome to our weekly feature courtesy of Sebastian Salek, the brains behind Clear the Lobby, working to bring you all the laws MPs are voting on this week, and explained in plain English!

The big event of the week is the Heathrow vote on Monday (which isn’t included here because it’s a motion, rather than a bill). Other than that, it’s scheduled to be a Brexit-free week, with a new government bill that aims to crack down on violent crime.
