What is the aim of SabinetLaw?
SabinetLaw aims to consolidate government, parliamentary and legislative information in a way that will answer questions on the background as well as the legislative process that leads to the adoption of a specific piece of legislation. The website strives to place ministers, government departments, and parliamentary committees involved in the legislative process in context with legislation. This site supports all the above with factual articles.
