What is Learn with the Lords: Private Members’ Bill Ballot?

Your students will have the chance to watch parliamentary procedure in action! Private Members’ bills are public bills introduced by Lords who are not government ministers. The names of Members applying for a bill are drawn in a ballot at the start of a new parliamentary session. Your students will watch a short presentation given by the Lords legislation team, before watching the ballot be drawn.

Who can take part?

Learn with the Lords: Private Members’ Bill Ballot is open to all post-16 students studying Government and Politics, Law or Modern Studies, or with an interest in the subject.
