We published our consultation paper on 27 October 2010, setting out our provisional proposals for comprehensive reform of the law on unfitness to plead in England and Wales. We received over 50 responses and, on 10 April 2013, we published an analysis of those responses.
I know that provisional could mean many meanings (temporary - conditional - limited , etc)
Could provisional mean a stock since the word provide has this meaning ? so the sentence speaks about a stock of proposals.
or could it mean current ? a current proposal is better I think.
The problem is that I do not find any dictionary gives these meanings.
Edit: to think of provisional as temporary is somewhat difficult because I find it strange that an institution gives temporary proposals to reform the law (why the institution make all these efforts to make just a temporary proposals?)... but yes sometimes it may do. The other thing is the word provide and its relation to provisional So in my mind I wondered if provisional could mean a stock, and came the idea that the institution might have given a stock of proposals.
