Public Bills ... Bite Size

All Acts of Parliament start as bills. 

There are many different types of bill: 

1. Public Bills

2. Private Members Bills

3. Private Bills

4. Hybrid Bills

In this blog I am going to consider public bills. 


A public bill is a government bill which is designed to advance the political programme of the party in government. Every bill has a sponsor. A public bill is sponsored by a government minister. 

The majority of bills considered by parliament are government sponsored public bills.
