An Act is a constitutional plan passed by the legislature that is referred to as a 'Bill' until ratified to become a law.
An Act may come into force immediately, on a specific starting date, or in stages.
Future changes to the law happen through the passing of another Act or delegated legislation. An Act can also be repealed so that its provisions no longer apply.
