Bill Progress

Object of the Bill

The National Council of Sports Act, Cap 48, enacted in 1948 is inadequated to address the current challenges of Sports administration and management in Uganda. The Ministry of Education and Sports therefore developed the National Physical Education and Sports policy to guide Government in the promotion of physical activities and sports, in a framework responsive to modern practices and for the direction of sports at the national and international levels.

Sports remains a key area that unifies Ugandans and which generates a spirit of patriotism and national glory of Uganda. Physical activity is also the uncontested source of excellent health, physical fitness and mental health which are a pre- requisite for a productive population to develop a nation.

First Reading/Committee

Bill is still at First Reading, the first reading being the first stage of a Bill passage through the Floor of Parliament and is usually a formality, it takes place without debate, and the first reading of a Bill can occur anytime in a parliamentary session.


Second Reading

Bill is in the second stage. The second reading is the first opportunity for MPs to debate the main principles of the Bill. It usually takes place up to 45 days after the first reading. Once second reading is complete the Bill proceeds to committee stage where each clause (part) and any amendments (proposals for change) to the Bill may be debated.



Third Reading

Parliament is passing the Bill. The third reading is the final chance for the Members of Parliament to debate the contents of a Bill. Here debate on the Bill is usually short and limited to what is actually in the Bill rather than, as at the second reading, what might have been included.
