Bills & Lawmaking

Note re: Dissolution of Parliament

When a general election is called, any bill that did not reach Royal Assent is deemed to have “died on the Order Paper,” (i.e., did not become law). Bills cannot be carried over between Parliaments, but similar bills might be introduced by members in the new Parliament. You can find all the bills from the most recent session of Parliament (41 Parliament, Session 3) on the Bills page.
