Differences between Supreme Legislation and Subordinate Legislation are as follows:
- SALMOND defines: “supreme legislation proceeds from the supreme or sovereign power in the state, and which is therefore incapable of being repealed, annulled or controlled by any other legislative authority”.
Supreme legislation is one and parliament has the supreme authority.
- It cannot be repealed, annulled or controlled by any other legislative authority, except parliament.
- SALMOND defines: “subordinate legislation is that which proceeds from any authority other than the sovereign power, and is therefore dependent for its continued existence and validity on some superior or supreme authority”.
- Subordinate legislation is of several kinds. All other forms of legislative activity recognized by the law are subordinate legislation.
- It can be repealed, annulled or controlled by parliament.
