First Reading/Committee

The bill is still at First Reading, and the first stage of a bill is a passage through the floor of parliament. This stage is usually a formality, primarily focusing on introducing the Bill to the Parliament. It takes place without debate, and the first reading of a Bill can occur anytime in a parliamentary session. The significance of this stage lies in the fact that it marks the formal introduction of the Bill to the Parliament, setting the stage for further discussions and debates.


Second Reading

The Bill has now progressed to the Second Reading, a stage that offers the first opportunity for MPs to engage in a democratic debate on the main principles of the Bill. This stage, which usually takes up to 45 days after the first reading, allows for thorough discussion and ensures that all voices are heard. Once the second reading is complete, the Bill moves to the committee stage, where each clause and any amendments to the Bill may be debated, further highlighting the democratic nature of the process.
