National Assembly for Wales
Once a bill is introduced into the Assembly it undergoes scrutiny. This is generally a 4 stage process:
- Stage 1 - consideration and agreement of the general principles of the bill
- Stage 2 - detailed consideration of the bill and any changes by a committee
- Stage 3 - detailed consideration of the bill and any changes by the Assembly
- Report stage – an optional stage to make changes (if required)
- Stage 4 – a vote by the Assembly to pass the final text of the bill.
Further information on the Assembly’s scrutiny process is available on the Assembly’s Guide to the Legislative Process.
