The government always argues that it does this because it does not want
to have to bring forth further primary legislation, instead changes can
be made by SI.

Personally I intensely dislike this method of lawmaking, it smacks of
the inability to decide on a course of action or to understand the
dangers of allowing SIs to be passed with little or no scrutiny.
