Bills in Progress

A list of all bills in progress can be accessed by the Scottish Parliament website at www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/bills/index.htm

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, amendments for consideration at Stage 2 may be lodged; and as soon as Stage 2 is completed, amendments for Stage 3 consideration may be lodged. The last lodging day for amendments at Stage 2 is three sitting days before the meeting at which those amendments will be considered (e.g. Thursday for a meeting on Tuesday); at Stage 3 it is four days before. Amendments may be lodged until 4.30 pm on any sitting day, except on the last lodging day for Stage 2, when the deadline is 12 noon. 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 different deadlines. These are set out in Rule 9A.12 of Standing Orders.
