A third reading allows for final changes to be made, and it is passed to the other house (the Lords if it is a Commons bill, and the Commons if it is a Lords bill), and final amendments can be made.Once these processes have been completed, the bill receives the ‘Royal Assent’, after which it becomes law.And the Procedure Committee warned that: "It does nothing for the reputation of the House if the most memorable moment of a formal legislative proceeding is the hanging of specific signs in the division lobbies and the movement of the Mace from above the Table to below the Table." The cross-party Procedure Committee said it was "deeply dissatisfied" with the rules governing Evel, which were "opaque and defy interpretation by Members".The way they were added to the standing orders which govern parliamentary procedure was "alien to the House's traditions and runs directly counter to efforts to make the House's procedures more accessible".Although statute law codifies certain rules, it is the continuing development and fluidity of case law that enables judges to interpret statute law.However, it should be noted that judges are not bound by their predecessors, which is why case law is susceptible to change.Public Acts are those that affect either the whole of the UK or some of its constituent countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, whereas private Acts may grant limited powers to public bodies such as local authorities, or apply only to specific locations within the UK.There has been a significant increase in the number of statutes passed in law in the United Kingdom in the 20th and 21st centuries.
