Private bills procedures

Private bills are proposed laws that seek special powers or exemptions for a particular person or group. They are sometimes called private legislation.

If a private bill is passed, it would allow a particular person or group to claim an exemption from the general law, or it would allow something that can’t be obtained under general law.

For more information about how private bills become law, see Procedures for Applying for Private Legislation (pdf).
