The Bill provides for negative and affirmative procedures to be used for secondary legislation under the key delegated powers. Parliament will need to be satisfied that the procedures in the Bill for scrutinising secondary legislation made under the Bill are appropriate for and proportionate to the task.

We are committed to ensuring proper scrutiny of the legislation whilst being conscious of the limitations of parliamentary time available.
