Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Thirty-First Report


Appendix 3

S.I. 2003/2148: memorandum from the Department for Education and Skills

Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Consolidation) (England) (Amendment No. 2) Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/2148)

1. The Committee considered the above instrument at its meeting on 28th October 2003 and requested a memorandum on the following point:

In regulation 6, should the paragraph inserted by paragraph (a) have been numbered (3A), and the words substituted by paragraph (b) have read ", (2) or (3A)"?

2. The Committee has identified correctly that the paragraph inserted by paragraph (a) should have been numbered (3A), and that the words substituted by paragraph (b) should have read ", (2) or (3A)".

3. The Department regrets this mistake but believes that the meaning of the amended regulation 10 of the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Consolidation) (England) Regulations 2001 (S.I. 2001/2897) remains tolerably clear. It considers that the reference in the "original" paragraph (4) as amended to the "new" paragraph (4) in the words "Except as provided for in paragraphs (1), (2) or (4)" can only make sense as a reference to the paragraph inserted by regulation 6 of the amending Regulations. The Department will, however, rectify this mistake when the Regulations are next amended.
