According to the UK Independence Party website UKIP will try to achieve the following if they gain power at the 2010 general election:
Departmental Select Committees should review relevant Statutory Instruments before a bill is laid before Parliament, and seek clarification and justification. Debates should only take place once the joint committee on Statutory Instruments has reported, to avoid unnecessary debate over defective instruments, and the time limits specified for debates should be lifted.
A Commons sifting committee should consider the legal implications of individual Statutory Instruments, with powers to call for more Government information, to recommend which negative procedure instruments ought to be debated, and which affirmative instruments agreed without debate, unless demanded. Praying Time, where opponents can call for a debate, should be increased from forty to sixty days.
I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Independence Party’s Secondary Legislation policies in the comments below?
