How British Parliament Actually Works

New Legislation

Proposed legislation is called a Bill. Bills that are more political or controversial generally begin in the House of Commons.

New legislation can be introduced by an MP, Lord or member of a public or private group. All proposed new legislation must be debated and voted on by both Houses for a law to be passed.

When both Houses vote in favor of a bill, it becomes law as Royal Assent is automatically given.
