The sections of ERR Bill changing copyright law had their nearly-final debate in the House of Lords at Report Stage on 11 March:see the report here.

There is far too much else going on, particularly a parallel review of copyright law in the Republic of Ireland - which shows signs of the government there coming under remarkably similar pressures.
