Parliament is the supreme law making body but sometimes it passes on the power to
make laws to other bodies. This is known as delegated legislation (DL). The framework
and power to do this is set out in the Parent Act (enabling Act). There are three types of
Bylaws are made by local councils (using the parent Act, the Local Government Act
1972) and other public bodies. Local councils pass laws that concern their area, e.g.
Preston Council makes laws concerning the city of Preston and Lancashire County
Council creates bylaws regarding the whole of Lancashire. Such laws tend to concern
traffic, parking, waste disposal, planning permission etc. Public bodies, such as the
British Airports Authority and the London Underground also have the power to make
laws regarding behaviour on their premises, e.g. banning smoking or alcohol.
