Business Bulletin No. 164 / 2003

Monday 1st December 2003

Section K : Progress of Parliamentary Business

  

For each Bill, the date of the next (or most recent) event in the Bill's passage is given. Other relevant information, e.g. about lodging amendments, is given in italics.

As soon as a Public Bill (i.e. an Executive, Committee or Member's Bill) has completed Stage 1, Stage 2 amendments may be lodged; and as soon as Stage 2 is completed, Stage 3 amendments may be lodged. The last lodging day for Stage 2 (or Reconsideration Stage) amendments is two sitting days before the Stage (e.g. Friday for a Stage 2 on Tuesday); for Stage 3 amendments, it is three days before. Amendments may be lodged until 4.30 pm on any sitting day, except on the last lodging day for Stage 2 (or Reconsideration Stage), when the deadline is 2 pm. Members are advised to lodge amendments in good time before the beginning of a Stage and as early as possible during the day.

Amendments to Private Bills are subject to equivalent deadlines, except that Consideration Stage amendments may not be lodged until the consideration of evidence at that Stage is completed, and only by members of the Private Bill Committee.

(Ex) = Executive Bill; (M) = Member's Bill; (C) = Committee Bill; (P) = Private Bill.
