Parliamentary Outreach holds regular free seminars providing information on how to engage with Parliament’s scrutiny of legislation.
Each workshop focuses on a different subject area, based on the Government's forthcoming legislative programme.
The workshops are part of Parliament’s efforts to encourage greater engagement with legislative scrutiny.
What do the Bill Seminars look at?
A typical Bill Seminar includes information on:
- submitting evidence to a Public Bill Committee in the Commons
- engaging with members of the Lords as they consider a Bill
- accessing independent House of Commons Library research
- tracking the progress of a Bill online
- understanding secondary legislation
Experts from the Houses of Parliament are on hand at each workshop to answer any questions on the parliamentary scrutiny of a Bill.
Next Public Bill event
We are currently planning future Public Bill Seminars and this webpage will be updated when these events have been confirmed.
The last Public Bill Seminar was held on Thursday 9 May 2013 focusing on the legislative process for new laws proposed in the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament on 8 May 2013 .
