No, as you well know, the commons passed it, the lords blocked it.

Given that it's a manifesto promise with large public backing, I think that they should give it another try.

Of course, if the Tories want to make a manifesto promise to reinstate it and get it (assuming it does get banned) then of course commons time should be given to it.

I don't agree with banning it btw, but the issue is important to many on both sides and hence worthy of further discussion
