Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Sixteenth Report



APPENDIX I

Memorandum by the Department for Education and Employment

EDUCATION (TRANSITION TO NEW FRAMEWORK) (SCHOOL ORGANISATION PROPOSALS) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/704)

  1. The Committee requested the Department to submit a memorandum on the following point:

    Regulation 12(b)(i) and (ii) each refer (in the manuscript addition) to "proposals published under section 42(1)(b) of the 1996 Act". Verify these references. Are they meant to refer to section 41(1)(b)?"

  2. The references to section 42(1)(b) were incorrect and should have been references to section 41(1)(b) and the Department is grateful to the committee for pointing out this error. The Department intends to amend the regulations to correct the error at the first appropriate opportunity.
