  • Secondary legislation does not face as much scrutiny as primary legislation.

    Primary legislation goes through both houses of parliament and through the ping-pong stage, Ensuring it is properly discussed. Delegated or secondary legislation does not do this and gives unnecessary power to the hands of ministers. This undermines the whole principle of the rule of law and parliamentary sovereignty. It is unjust.
