An update to the UK Parliament's House of Commons Library reveals that the Data Protection and Digital Information (No.2) Bill (DPDIB) will return to Parliament for its remaining stages on 29 November, having been carried over to the 2023-24 session. The Parliamentary Bills page indicates that the DPDIB's passage has reached the Report stage.
