Lack of publicity; DL isnt debated in Parliament. A controversial topic is put to media attention Immigration Act 2014 however the Civil Procedure (ammendment no 7) Rules 2014

Contradict the seperation of powers: DL allows an overlap. SI is made by gov ministers who should make policy not law.

No effective control: Negative, problematic law may come into force automatically. Need the funds, an interested party to come forward and for a problem to arise. Strickland v Hayes

Undemocratic: SI Most law is completed by unselected permant employed civil servants. They dont change in line with the party that has been elected
