Draft Bills before Parliament
The Government publishes a number of Draft Bills during each parliamentary session.
A Draft Bill is published to enable consultation and pre-legislative scrutiny. After consultation and pre-legislative scrutiny has taken place, the Draft Bill may be introduced formally in the House of Commons or the House of Lords.
Most Draft Bills are examined either by select committees in the House of Commons or in the House of Lords, or by a joint committee of both Houses of Parliament.
