Proposed members' bills

Members' bills are bills introduced by members who are not ministers. Every second Wednesday the House gives precedence to local, private, and members' bills. On these days members' bills are debated.

Only eight members' bills awaiting first reading can be on the Order Paper on each members' day. When a space on the Order Paper becomes available, a ballot is held to decide which members' bill(s) will be introduced. Members enter bills in the ballot by lodging notices of proposal with the Table Office and providing a copy of the proposed bill. This can be done on any working day. The proposed bill is then posted on the website and members can publicly indicate their support for the bill prior to the ballot.
