The Ministerial Committee for Legislation was on Sunday slated to discuss a bill proposing a new law that would give authority only to the Knesset to approve building freezes in the West Bank.

The bill, submitted by MKs Karmel Shama and Uri Ariel, is intended to prevent the renewal of settlement construction at the end of the current 10-month moratorium.
