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.


Presentation/Waiting Assent

Waiting for Assent. Bill is waiting for the President to assent to it. When the Floor of Parliament has passed a Bill, it shall be presented to the President, and the President shall declare either that he assents to the Bill or that he withholds assent.
