Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Eleventh Report



APPENDIX IV

Memorandum by the Department for Education and Employment

EDUCATION (DETERMINATION OF ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/126)

1. The Committee requested a memorandum on the following point:—

    "Regulation 6(2)(a) refers to selective admission arrangements as defined by section 104(4) of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. Ought this to be a reference to subsection (2) of that section?"

2. The reference should indeed have been to section 104(2) and the Department is grateful to the Committee for drawing attention to this point. In the Department's view however the meaning of regulation 6(2)(a) is still clear.

3. The Department proposes to amend this provision the next time the regulations are amended.
