Hide details for Legislative Process HandbookLegislative Process Handbook

The handbook details the process of developing Acts of Parliament from the perspective of those involved, directly or indirectly, with the Office of the Chief Parliamentary Counsel. The handbook is primarily aimed at people responsible for instructing on legislation and other people who work with legislation.

The handbook has two main components. The first component is a basic user's guide to finding your way around an Act of Parliament. The second component sets out the process for obtaining authority to draft a Bill, looks at the role of the drafter and the drafting process, procedures for introducing Bills into Parliament, the role of the Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations Committee, and steps through the procedure for the passage of Bills through Parliament.
