How do laws get made?

Laws, which are also sometimes referred to as legislation, are debated and made in Parliament.

Politicians propose laws in Parliament. Before they become law, they are first debated and then voted upon in the House of Commons and House of Lords.

If more MPs in the House of Commons vote against a proposal than in favour of it, it will be thrown out and will not become law.
