A Bill is a proposal for a new law, or a proposal to change an existing law that is presented for debate before Parliament. Only Parliament can pass a Bill.
Bills are introduced in Parliament for examination, discussion and amendment. Each Bill goes through several stages and passage in Parliament, giving MPs and the public the chance to have their say about the Bill. Once Royal Assent is given a Bill becomes an Act of Parliament and is law.
