The Hansard Society Delegated Legislation Review: An introduction

The leaflet sets out why we are undertaking the Review, some of our plans for the process, and how it could make a difference – for government, Parliament and the public. The leaflet also summarises some of the problems with the delegation of powers in Bills, and the scrutiny of the Statutory Instruments that arise from those powers, that need to be resolved. A more detailed presentation of the problems, together with a number of illustrative case studies, is in our November 2021 report Delegated legislation: the problems with the process.
