Memorandum by the Department
for Education and Employment
1999 (S.I. 1999/126)
1. The Committee requested a memorandum
on the following point:
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.
