From time to time, the Presiding Officer must hold a ballot to determine the name of a Member, other than a member of the government, who may seek the Assembly’s agreement to introduce a Bill.

A Member must provide "pre-ballot information" to set out the intended purpose of their proposed Bill.

If the Assembly agrees to the introduction of such a Bill, the Ballot winner may consult on their proposals before formally introducing their Bill.
