The Legislative Process in the House of Commons

Over the next few weeks I will be writing a series of posts about procedure and practice relating to the passage of Bills through the House of Commons. This will be in more depth than the overviews that can normally be found - for example (and I'd recommend this to anyone wanting a useful overview of the UK legislative process) - the guide on the Parliamentary website.

One criticism that is often made of the Commons process, is that there is insufficient scrutiny. In this series I will highlight opportunities for scrutiny. Most of all - I would encourage you to look at bills - and contact your Member of Parliament if you identify concerns. Better legislation is in OUR interests.
