The government's planned changes to the NHS in England have cleared their final reading in the House of Lords
Labour have forced a Commons debate on whether MPs can consider planned NHS changes for a final time before an assessment of the potential risks to the health service is published.
It will take place on Tuesday after being granted by Speaker John Bercow.The government has agreed to a series of changes to the bill and want it to become law as soon as possible.
MPs will consider amendments to the bill agreed by the Lords on Tuesday - the final stage in its passage - but only after the 90-minute emergency debate on the plans.
