If the government puts forward a bill and the House rejects it, is there any reason why they should not put up much the same bill at a later date?

No, but there are provisions allowing representation of the same bill, and, depending upon the nature of it, and a great deall of huffing and puffing, the lords must then pass it.

Surely only if the Commons pass it first?

The answer to the original question is no.

The only constraint is whether the government believes that on the umpteenth bite of the cherry it can get sufficient votes.

It may simply be a question of timing, or format as to the reason it gets rejected first time.

Thank you for your answers.
