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.
