Government Bills currently before Parliament


Government Bills are tabled by HM Government Ministers to enact legislative goals communicated during the Queen's Speech.

They are allocated Government time in the House of Commons and utilise programme motions to achieve a timely passage through the Commons. If you wish to contribute your view on a Government bill to your MP, it will be more likely to have an impact if made early in the bill process.

5 Bills progressed beyond Second Reading in the first house

These bills have passed the first substantive debate on the initial draft of the Bill (Second Reading) and are now in the process of review and amendment of bill text by a Bill Committee. For the Commons, Bill Committees are formed of around 20 MPs, whereas in the Lords, a Committee of the Whole House is usually formed.

For Commons Private Members Bills, the most difficult hurdle is to pass Second Reading, due to lack of time for the debate. Since 1986, every Government Bill has passed Second Reading.
