Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which private Members’ Bills were drafted by her Department in each session since 1997; and which of those received Royal Assent. (77513)

The information requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Members will consider a range of possible subjects before introducing their private Members' Bills.

Government draftsmen do draft some Bills in advance which are available as one of the options for Members to consider before they make their selection.

However, Members may make subsequent amendments or revisions to a Government-drafted Bill, or use it as the basis for a private Members’s Bill in the future.
