    2.4 Bill or subordinate legislation?

    A Bill is an expression of government policy and should clearly deal with all matters of importance for the implementation of that policy. Matters of detail and matters likely to experience frequent change, for example fees, should generally be contained in subordinate legislation or authorised by the Governor in Council, a Minister or a chief executive.
