How do I pass a 2-part parameter from one PS script to another?

Given that I have defined these variables in Switchboard-network adapters.ps1

[string] $PsFolder = "C:\Computer\Hardware\Network adapters"
[string] $ScriptToRun = "$PsFolder\EnableDisableNetworkAdapters.ps1"
[string] $ParmToUse = "-wired query"

and my parameter declaration is at the top of EnableDisableNetworkAdapters.ps1

      [string] $wireless,
      [string] $wired,
      [switch] $help

why does this work from the console command line

&'C:\Computer\Hardware\Network adapters\EnableDisableNetworkAdapters.ps1' -wired query

but neither of these work from within Switchboard-network adapters.ps1?

&"$ScriptToRun" "$ParmToUse"

&($ScriptToRun) ($ParmToUse)

My error trapping in EnableDisableNetworkAdapters.ps1 produces

[-wired query] is an unrecognized parameter.
