The Meaning of Delegated Legislation

Delegated Legislation may be defined as laws, rules and regulations made by other bodies or persons other than the legislature. The legislature delegates part of its law making function to individuals, groups of individuals, ministries, corporation, local governments etc. The complicated nature of government activities have made it difficult for the legislature to take care of all law making responsibilities in the country which is its primary function. Due to this fact, some of the law making responsibilities have to be transferred or delegated to some persons or bodies apart from the legislature.

Delegated legislation has the same legal force and effect as the Act of Parliament under which it is enacted. Simply put, delegated legislation is made up of laws that are created under the authority of Parliament, but not by Parliament itself. The Enabling or Parent Act is what is used to specify the person or group with the power to make more specific laws and the extent of their power.
