This one comes from Joyce in Worcester, and her question is: “What is the best way to read and comprehend Act of Parliament?”
To read and comprehend an Act of Parliament, you first need to understand what an Act of Parliament is and what it isn’t.
Acts of Parliament start off as Draft Bills, and eventually become Bills proper, which make their way through Parliament.
Acts are written in a form of Legal English (of which there are many).
