Statutory rules and orders

  (Redirected from Statutory Rules and Orders)

Statutory rules and orders were the means by which delegated legislation used to be made in the United Kingdom between 1893 and 1974.

Statutory rules and orders began with the Rules Publication Act 1893. Prior to that Act there had been no consistent way of publishing orders, regulations or other delegated legislation made by the government.

In Great Britain they were replaced by statutory instruments in 1948 following the passing of the Statutory Instruments Act 1946.

In Northern Ireland statutory rules and orders were replaced by Statutory Rules under the Statutory Rules (Northern Ireland) Order 1979.
