Lords debate Illegal Migration Bill until 4am
By Emaan Warraich
A debate on the Illegal Migration Bill in the House of Lords continued until 4.16am on Thursday morning.
There was criticism from some peers about the late hours, with one Labour peer describing it as "disgraceful".
It is rare for MPs or peers to continue to debate so late.
The bill, aimed at stopping people crossing the Channel in small boats, has already passed the Commons but has run into strong opposition from peers as they continue detailed debate.
The legislation gives ministers the power to remove anyone arriving in the UK illegally, and migrants would be barred from claiming asylum.
The Lords was holding its third day debate on committee stage of the bill, which is when changes to the bill, or amendments, are discussed.
