*Note that although this was formally one sitting day, in practice it lasted until the evening of Friday 11 March. The gaps between sittings in the Lords and Commons were to allow time for messages to be taken between the Houses, for the Government and Opposition to table amendments, and for the Public Bill Offices to prepare the housebills, marshalled lists and procedural briefs.
