Business itemc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/BusinessItem

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
An item of business conducted either within or outside Parliament. For example: a second reading debate, the tabling of an early day motion, a laying of a paper, the making of a statutory instrument by a government minister.

Business stepc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/BusinessStep

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A business step is a step that can be actualised by a business item.

Decision stepc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/DecisionStep

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A decision step describes the requirement for a decision to be made before the to route can be followed. Routes may be indicated as allowed rather than causal by means of a decision step. A route linking a business step actualised by a business item with a date in the past to a business step which has not been actualised by means of a decision step indicates that actualisation of the step may happen in the future, being an allowed relationship.

Housec back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/House

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A House forming part of a parliament. For example, the House of Lords.

Logic gate stepc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/LogicGateStep

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A logic gate step performs a logical operation on one or more routes. Both the input and the output of a logic gate are either True or False. A route linking a business step actualised by a business item with a date in the past to a business step which has not been actualised by means of a logic gate step with type NOT indicates that actualisation of the step cannot happen in the future, being a precluding relationship. A step may preclude itself from repeated actualisations by means of a set of routes through a logic gate step of type NOT to itself. For example, in the made affirmative statutory instrument procedure the step 'cleared by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments' may happen only once, being a precluding relationship.

Logic gate typec back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/LogicGateType

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A logic gate has a type of NOT, AND or OR. A logic gate with type NOT when given True has the result False and when given False has the result True. A logic gate with type AND takes at least two routes as inputs: if all are True the output route is True. A logic gate with type OR takes at least two routes as inputs: if at least one is True the output route is True.

Procedurec back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/Procedure

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A procedure in a House or Houses. For example, the passage of a made affirmative statutory instrument in both Houses. A procedure may consist of business in a particular House, such as a division; business undertaken by both Houses jointly, such as a joint committee; processes applying to either House, such as a time period; and activities outside Parliament, such as the making of a statutory instrument. In this model a procedure that consists of business in both Houses is considered as a single procedure. Procedures may be constructed from commonly occurring sets of routes. For example, the set of routes involved in EVEL certification.

Routec back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/Route

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A route is a link from one step to another. The source of a route may also be its destination. A route is available when the from step is True, actualised by a business item having a date in the past, or by the input from a logic gate step being True. The validity period of a route may be indicated by its start or end date. A route linking a business step actualised by a business item with a date in the past to a business step which has not been actualised indicates that actualisation of the step will happen in the future, being a causal relationship.

Stepc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/Step

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A step is either a business step, a logic gate step or a decision step. Steps are joined by routes to form procedures. For example, within the SI procedures there exists a step named 'English Votes for English Laws (EVEL) consideration'. Steps may occur in more than one procedure. For example, all statutory instrument procedures include the EVEL consideration step.

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/WorkPackage

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A grouping of business items which may be a group falling under a procedure, or a grouping determined by a committee. For example, business items considered during the passage of a particular statutory instrument or public bill, or during an inquiry by a select committee.

Actualisesop back to ToC or Object Property ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/actualises

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
Relates a business item to a step in a procedure by means of a route. For example, relating the second reading of a public bill to the second reading step in the procedure. A step may be actualised by more than one business item in different work packages. A business item may actualise one or more steps. For example, a business item appearing in the Order Paper including a debate on several motions may actualise steps relating to each motion.

Follows routeop back to ToC or Object Property ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/followsRoute

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
Relates a procedure to a route. A route may appear in one or more procedures. For example, the route between 'Considered for English votes for English laws (EVEL) certification' to 'Certified as England only under the English votes for English laws (EVEL) process' appears in the draft negative, made negative, draft affirmative and made affirmative procedures.

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/formsPartOf

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
Relates a business item to a work package it forms part of. One or more business items may form part of a work package. A business item may form part of one or more work packages. For example, a meeting of the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments may consider one or more SIs, each SI being the focus of a separate work package.
