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.

A minimum of eight Members’ bills awaiting first reading should 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 Member's bill will be introduced. Members enter bills in the ballot by lodging notices of proposal for their bills.
