This is the release of a person (generally accused of a crime) on a promise to return (either to a police station or to a court). It means that the person is at liberty rather than in custody while awaiting the outcome of an investigation or court case. There is a presumption that bail will be granted unless there are good reasons for refusing it.
A bill is a proposal for a new law. It must then go through all the necessary stages in the UK Parliament, and only if it is passed by the House of Commons and the House of Lords and receives royal assent will it become an Act of Parliament. A bill becomes law on its commencement date.
