why the matter is to be dealt with in delegated legislation
the nature and justification for the parliamentary procedures proposed
Delegated legislation is usually concerned with detailed changes to the law made under powers from an existing Act of Parliament. It is also known as secondary legislation. Delegated legislation allows the government to make changes to a law without a new Act of Parliament.
We introduced the Pension Schemes Bill to Parliament on 26 June 2014.
We have published an updated version of the memorandum (November 2014) following the introduction of the Bill to the House of Lords on 26 November 2014. This incorporates changes made to the Bill during its debate in the House of Commons. We have kept the earlier version of the memorandum on the page for information.
