    If you look at past paper mark schemes, it specifies that for 8-10 marks, you can just put 3 points that are well explained with examples or you can put 5 points that have been discussed but aren't that in depth.

    So for arguments sake, if a question on Advantages of Delegated Legislation came up, you could get near to full marks by writing about the fact that it is quicker as the process isn't as long due to not having to go through houses of parliament. An example of when this is advantage is in cases of emergency under the emergency powers act 1920 and the civil contingencies act 2004 with a recent use of this being the 9/11 case in which they had to stop all flights in and out of the UK.

    It is also democratic as for Bylaws and Statutory instruments, Government ministers and Local Authorities are elected into power and bylaws made by local governments act 1972 are made by local councilors.

    Some laws require specialist knowledge in order to make the correct decisions about certain factors so powers are given to those with specialist knowledge on the matter. Road traffics act 1972 stated that motorcyclists had to wear helmets but the details were left to the minister of transport to publish in the Motor Cycles regulations 1980.

    Hopefully that would get you 8-10 marks, hope i helped

    Although i thought delegated legislation was created by mainly undemocratic people according to my teacher

    e.g by laws we don't vote local authorities in?

    Bylaws are made by local authorities and given authority by relevant goverment ministers who are voted in. Plus, the local authorities act 1972 was created to allow authorities to make law. Its both democratic and undemocratic. SI's are democratic along with bylaws whereas orders in council aren't.

    oh ok . so in the unlikely event the question is on the disadvantages of delegated legislation could i use by-laws as a disadvantage cause not only local authority but organisation and company's can make rules making it un democratic.

    Regarding orders in council it only consist of the privy council or i'm i missing something?

    If disadvantages came up, you could say that by-laws are sightly undemocratic but its mainly orders in council as they re drafted by government but given formal approval by privy council and the queen who aren't elected.

    Hi, I know this was a year ago, but I'm re sitting the unit one exam to boost my overall law grade (I'm doing a third year) and I was wondering what was on the unit 1 law exam last year? Particularly parliamentary law making.

    Thanks

    I do parliamentary supremacy- the questions were parliamentary supremacy, green paper and White paper with the stages of a bill in parliament I think the last one was advantages/disadvantages of putting bills through parliament. Delegates legislation was by laws and I think statutory instruments, judicial controls and discuss why parliament delegate power. Civil courts and ADR was negotiation/mediation, tribunals and why court is used instead of ADR I think
