  1. The Department for Education and Employment submits this Memorandum in response to the request from the Committee dated 5 July 2000 on the following point:

      "In article 4 of each Order, explain the significance of the square brackets and the status of the words within them"

  2. All of the square brackets in article 4 of each Order should have been removed before the Order was made. The intention is that the words within the square brackets form part of article 4 of the Order. This should have been picked up at the proof reading stage and the Department apologises for this error.
