Proposals for Bills

Proposed Bills can be Members' Bills, Committee BillsPrivate Bills or Hybrid Bills.

Under the Parliament’s rules, an MSP who wishes to introduce a Member’s Bill must first lodge a proposal. A committee that wishes to introduce a Committee Bill must also first lodge a proposal.

A proposal is “current” until either:

  • the MSP or committee obtains the right to introduce a Bill, or
  • the proposal falls or is withdrawn

at which point the proposal is “completed”.

For a Private Bill or a Hybrid Bill to be introduced, notice must be given in a newspaper. There are currently no proposed Private or Hybrid Bills.
