This occurs when Judges are asked to review the delegated legislation and decide whether it's lawful or not.

Ultra Vires

Ultra Vires is a court order which says that the delegated legislation is beyond the powers set out in the parent Act. E.g Fulham Corporation, granted powers to build washing facilities but built a laundry.

Altra Vires

Procedural Altra Vires is when delegated legislation has not been made using the procedures set out by the Parent Act.
