A Bill may have a short title (e.g. 'Consolidated Fund Bill') and a long title (e.g. 'A Bill to authorise the use of resources for the service of the years ending with 31 March 2009 and 31 March 2010 and to apply certain sums out of the Consolidated Fund to the service of the years ending with 31 March 2009 and 31 March 2010'). Use the short title in your reference.
Bills are introduced in either the House of Commons or the House of Lords. Indicate the House where the Bill originated using either HC Bill or HL Bill.
A Bill is assigned a 'running number':
If a Bill is reprinted at any stage it is given a new running number.
Bills are divided into: parts; clauses; subsections; paragraphs and subparagraphs.
The main text of the Bill may be supplemented by schedules, which are divided into parts, paragraphs and subparagraphs.
These divisions are referenced using either a term (e.g. clause 3) or an abbreviation (e.g. cl 3) as follows:
If citing a paragraph or subsection as part of a clause, use only the abbreviation for the clause. For example, paragraph (d) of subsection (2) of clause 8 of the Academies HL Bill (2010-11) 1 is referenced as follows: Academies HL Bill (2010-11) 1, cl 8(2)(d).
