A bill is a proposed law, (an act or statute). A bill is introduced to the House of Assembly by a minister. To become a law, a bill goes through a number of stages - first reading, second reading, Committee of the Whole (amendments, if any, are made at this stage), third reading and Royal Assent. The tables track the progress of bills before the House during the session in which they were considered.
The text of each bill linked below appears as it is circulated in the House after first reading. If the bill is amended in Committee of the Whole stage, the amendments appear in red text. To review the definitive final version of the law – the new act or statute - note the chapter number in the last column and refer to the list of statutes for this year. If you require a copy of the unamended bill as circulated to the House after first reading, contact the Legislative Library.
