How are laws made in Parliament?

While a proposed new law is going through Parliament, before it becomes a law, it is called a Bill. The Bill has to be properly written out/drafted, explaining carefully how and when the new law is going to be used.

Stages in making a law:

1.       FIRST READING: the Bill is published for MP’s to read. There is no discussion or vote.

2.       SECOND READING: a government minister explains the purpose of the Bill and answers questions about it. Only if MP’s vote for the Bill can it continue through the stages.

3.       COMMITTEE
