Weekly Information Bulletin
Weekly Information Bulletin: 28th February 2009
The most common form of delegated legislation, or secondary legislation, is Statutory Instruments. Those requiring parliamentary approval are subject to either the affirmative or negative procedure: this is explained in HCIO Factsheet L7.
The laying of Orders before the House of Commons is recorded in the Statutory Instrument List published by the Journal Office: www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm/cmsilist/cmsilist.htm. This list records when Orders were laid and in the case of affirmative instruments, whether a motion for their approval has been tabled. In the case of Negative Instruments, the number of praying days left (in which a motion calling for the instrument to be annulled may be laid) is noted.
Outstanding Orders are listed below. Details of previous Orders are available in earlier editions of the bulletin.
