Parliamentary Agent in United Kingdom

Parliamentary Agent Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

Parliamentary Agents are special lawyers who introduce and promote Private Bills through Parliament. As Private Bills affect only a particular group or individual such as a company or a local council it is up to them to petition Parliament to introduce a Bill. Parliamentary Agents can also act for petitioners opposing a Private Bill and they must be registered with the Private Bill Office.
