Parliament's website explains:QuoteThere are two types of Statutory Instrument (SI):Affirmative instruments: Both Houses of Parliament must expressly approve themNegative instruments: become law without a debate or a vote but may be annulled by a resolution of either House of Parliament In both cases, Parliaments room for manoeuvre is limited. Parliament can accept or reject an SI but cannot amend it.I also get the impression they are more the realm of specific committees.The copyright reform SIs are the affirmative type. The list of SIs in the House of Commons shows the SIs in question as having been presented for approval (or rejection) on 27 March. If approved, they'll move to one of the other lists on that page, and will have an "approved" date shown. I wasn't able to find a similar list for the House of Lords; it seems this is the only list there is, so you tell me what that means.
