Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill — New Clause "15" — Sub-delegated legislative functions — 16 May 2006 at 20:45

Those voting No rejected a proposed new clause "NC15" for the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill that would have said:

Where... the function of legislating has been conferred on a person, any legislation that person makes must be made by statutory instrument,... [be subject to a Parliamentary veto specified by] Section 10,... [and that] person... shall be subject to the same duties to consult before exercising that power as those to which a minister of the Crown is subject under section 11.
Legislation made by a person on whom the function of legislating has been conferred under this part
  • may not delegate further any power to legislate,
  • may only be made for purposes for which orders under this part may themselves be made, and
  • is subject to the same restrictions as orders under this part.

This had been intended to control the powers voted through with new clause "19", where provisions included:

conferring functions on any person (including functions of legislating or functions relating to the charging of fees)

In simple terms, the proposed Bill gives a minister the power to rewrite any legislation. It also gives him the right, by Section 1(7)(a) of the new Bill to confer this power to rewrite legislation onto anyone he chooses. But while ministers are accountable to Parliament, and have to file all their orders through using Statutory Instruments which are seen by Parliament, the person to whom they confer this power does not necessarily have such duties. This new clause, which was rejected, would have made such people as accountable to Parliament as ministers when they exercised these powers.
