    Reviewer comments

    I have modified the original submission/review to reflect that not all data characteristics are available, nor is the data available up to date. A selection of laws are available here:, however, as stated on the site: "This information is: not necessarily comprehensive, complete, accurate or up to date; sometimes linked to external sites over which LesLII has no control and for which LesLII assumes no responsibility." The parliament's website ( contains links for laws, bills and more, however there is no documentation available. For these reasons, I have modified the submission to reflect that the data is not available.
