Bills withdrawn and other bills presented

28.22If for any reason the Member in charge of a bill wishes to make alterations to its text before second reading, they can do so only by withdrawing the bill and presenting another one. The same course is followed if a change in the title is required.1 In the case of bills ordered upon resolution, a bill has been withdrawn and another bill ordered to be brought in, after reading the resolution upon which the first bill was founded.2
