What data is expected?

Data about the bills discussed within national parliament as well as votings on bills (not to mix with passed national law). Data on bills must be available for the current legislation period. Open data on the law-making process is crucial for parliamentary transparency: What does a bill text say and how does it change over time? Who introduces a bill? Who votes for and against it? Where is a bill discussed next, so the public can participate in debates? This data category draws on work by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Declaration of Parliamentary Openness.

Reviewer comments

Per the original review, Anton, the Barbados Draft Legislation database is searchable, available here: http://www.barbadosparliament.com/bills/search - Bills & Resolutions. While it includes the Content of a bill (via PDF), the status of a bill, dates of introduction and passing, as well as relevant amendments – it does not include the author, votes, nor transcripts of the debates. For this reason, the data does not meet all required characteristics.
