COMPLETE LIST OF PUBLIC BILLS BEFORE PARLIAMENT THIS SESSION

The following is a list of Public Bills which are before Parliament this session, with the exception of Order Confirmation Bills.

In order to save space, the list is in an abbreviated form. The title of the Bill is followed by a letter denoting the type of Bill (see Legislation - General Notes) and the name of the Member and/or Peer sponsoring it. This is followed by the Bill number (or Bill numbers if it has been reprinted as amended, with the original first and the latest reprinting last). Then follow the dates of the various stages (eg 8.11 - 8 November). All forthcoming, and therefore provisional, dates are italicised. Government Bills are listed in bold type.
