Name the criticism‟s that have been leveled against delegate legislation as a source of law

It is argued that delegated legislation is not as democratic as statute law in that it is not always made by representatives of the people.
• Neither parliament nor courts of law can effectively control delegated legislation.
• It is contended that the rules tend to be very detailed and technical and are therefore difficult to comprehend.
• Delegates often sub-delegate law making powers to other persons which may lead to abuse of power. This compounds the problem of control.

• This source of law receives minimal publicity if any. The rules are to a large extent unknown.
