Memorandum by the Department for Education and
EDUCATION (MANDATORY AWARDS) REGULATIONS 2000 (S.I. 2000/2123)
1. The Committee has asked the Department for a Memorandum
on the following point:
"Explain the need for the
definition of "British Islands" in regulation 2, given
that the Interpretation Act 1978, in Schedule 1, defines that
expression in the same terms."
2. The Department is grateful to the Committee for
drawing its attention to this error for which it wishes to apologise.
This definition has been included in previous enactments of these
regulations since 1982. The Department will ensure that this definition
is removed when these Regulations are next amended.
