Social security and pensions debate

13 February 2009

House of Commons debates delegated legislation on benefits uprating and minimum pension increases for 2009.

Delegated legislation allows the Government to make changes to a law without needing to push through a completely new Act of Parliament. The original Act (also known as primary legislation) would have provisions that allow for future delegated legislation to alter the law to differing degrees.
