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 Parliament or outside Parliament and producing an outcome subject to procedure. 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.

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.

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.

Routec back to ToC or Class ToC

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

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A route with a type links a step or steps. To allow for changes in procedure over time, a route's start and end date are marked by means of startOn and endOn from the core ontology. A route is made traversable after the appropriate preceding step (linked via fromStep) is actualised by a business item having a date in the past.

Route typec back to ToC or Class ToC

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

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A route type is one of causes, allows, requires and precludes. A route with type 'causes' relates a preceding step (linked via fromStep) to a following step (linked via toStep) where actualisation of the preceding step by a business item with a date in the past causes the inevitability of the following step. A route with type 'allows' relates a preceding step to a following step where actualisation of the preceding step by a business item with a date in the past allows but does not cause the following step. A route with type 'requires' relates a preceding step to a following step where actualisation of the following step by a business item with a date in the past is necessary before the preceding step can happen. A route with type 'precludes' relates a preceding step to a following step where actualisation of the preceding step by a business item with a date in the past precludes the following step. Particular steps occur only once in a work package. For example, in the made affirmative statutory instrument procedure the step 'cleared by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments' may happen only once. A route with the type 'precludes' may route a step to the same step. When a step is actualised by a business item with a date in the past, further instances of that step being actualised in the work package become precluded.

Stepc back to ToC or Class ToC

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

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A step forming part of a procedure by means of a route. For example, English Votes for English Laws (EVEL) consideration of a a statutory instrument. Steps may form part of more than one procedure. For example, all statutory instruments are subject to EVEL consideration.

Work packagec back to ToC or Class ToC

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

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A grouping of business items being considered together. Membership of a work package group is constrained by the capacity of a business item to actualise a step in the applicable procedure. For example, business items during the passage of a particular statutory instrument, or during the passage of a particular public bill.

Work packageable thingc back to ToC or Class ToC

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

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
A thing resulting in business items grouped into a work package. The model describes the relationship between a work package and a workpackageable thing as the focus of the work package.

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 (via a route) e.g. relates the second reading of a specific public bill to the corresponding (conceptual) step in the procedure. Note that whilst a step might be actualised by several business items (in different work packages), a business item might actualise one or several steps e.g. there might be a calendarised business item on the order paper that includes a debate on a number of motions. This would actualise steps relating each of those motions.

Followsop back to ToC or Object Property ToC

Forms part ofop back to ToC or Object Property ToC

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

is defined by
http://parliament.uk/ontologies/procedure/
Relates a particular business item to the work package it forms part of. A work package may be formed of more than one business item and a particular business item may be included in more than one work package. For example, a meeting of the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments may consider one or more SIs, with each SI being the focus of a separate work package.
