Catalan to English translations [PRO]
Catalan term or phrase: avantprojecte
Is a context-specific English term needed or would "draft" do?

"Sobre el debat de la llei es produeix la paradoxa que amb les presses per voler tramitar la llei el govern incompleix el tràmit de sotmetre **l’avantprojecte** al Dictamen (no vinculant) del Consell General del Poder Judicial, això provoca que el primer avantprojecte, presentat el 7 de juliol no fos vàlid i endarrereix els terminis."

preliminary bill

I agree with "draft", but in Parliament this term is not used.
The English say "prelimary reading of a bill", or "preliminary bill".
