Good Morning nobbyall :wave:

"Statutory Instruments, also known as SIs, are a form of legislation which allow the provisions of an Act of Parliament to be subsequently brought into force or altered without Parliament having to pass a new Act. They are also referred to as secondary, delegated or subordinate legislation."

"The National Archives on behalf of HM Government maintain the full text of all published Statutory Instruments Legislation.gov.uk (external site) from 1987."

"Delegated or secondary legislation is usually concerned with detailed changes to the law made under powers from an existing Act of Parliament.

Delegated legislation allows the Government to make changes to a law without needing to push through a completely new Act of Parliament. The original Act (also known as primary legislation) would have provisions that allow for future delegated legislation to alter the law to differing degrees.

These changes range from the technical, like altering the level of a fine, to fleshing out Acts with greater detail; often an Act contains only a broad framework of its purpose and more complex content is added through delegated legislation."

Excellent info, thank you very much.
Just a observation, is there any way on here you can thank individuals for their postings?

Hi nobbyall. This was something Jack looked at a few months ago when he was upgrading the main site and the bowels of the forums, which takes up many hours after his normal working day. At the moment the only way you can do this is to either put a reply into a post thanking folks, or PM them.

Jack will be looking at this again I am sure. .salut
