I came across the following sentences while studying my vocabulary:
-The motion to ban fox hunting was rejected by five votes.
-The government has introduced a bill outlining its plans for the coal industry.
Could you tell me what is the difference between motion and bill please.
Thanks a lot.
A motion is a formal proposal put to a legislature or committee
A bill is a draft of a proposed law presented to Parliament for discussion
Generally a motion cannot become law, but can lead to the development of a bill that may eventually become law.
