On 13 March 2019 the Examiners of the House of Commons and the House of Lords met to assess whether the Petition for Additional Provision (February 2019) relating to the High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill met the requirements of the Standing Orders of both Houses.
The following Report from the Examiners of Petitions for Private Bills was referred to the Committee:
The Examiners certified that certain Standing Orders apply to the Petition for Additional Provision 2 deposited in February 2019 in relation to the High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill (currently before the House of Commons) and that, of those which are applicable, Standing Orders 4, 4A, 10, 10A, 11, 12, 12A, 13, 18, 27, 27A, 34, 36, 39, 41, 45 and 47 have not been complied with.
