This storyboard does not have a description.
STEP 1: A new law is proposed or a law they want to change and is discussed. A decision is then made on what to do
STEP 2: If the government decides to continue they ask government lawyers to draft a bill. A bill is basically a 'first draft' of an Act of Parliament
STEP 3: A copy of the bill is given out to each member of the house of representatives. Each member reads the bill, this is known as the 'first reading'
"This is a brilliant change to this law"
