Ways and Means resolution

Selected letter W

Ways and Means resolutions are used by the Commons to give consent to parts of a Bill that will involve taxes or other charges being made on the public. They are usually approved without debate after a Bill has passed its Second reading; an exception being the annual Finance Bill whose ways and means resolutions are debated after the Budget statement and agreed before the Bill is introduced.
