Schedule  12,  page  136,  line  29,  after ‘subsection (1)’ insert ‘(like the power in

 

subsection (1) of section one of this Act)’.

Following a DEFRA consultation (undertaken with the Scottish and Welsh Governments), this

industries), rather than the Secretary of State, the successor to the Council for Small Industries in

This amendment is consequential on amendment 53.  As the Secretary of State is no longer to have

 

the power to appoint a member of the Farriers Registration Council, this amendment removes the

 

requirement for the Secretary of State to consult the Scottish Ministers before making an

 

appointment.

Schedule  15,  page  150,  line  26,  leave out paragraph 2 and insert—

 

‘2  (1)

(d)    

in the Education Act 2011, in Schedule 13, omit paragraph 10(9).

Paragraph 2 of Schedule 15 currently provides for the requirement that governing bodies of

 

certain schools (maintained schools, city technology colleges, city colleges for the technology of

 

the arts and Academy schools) adopt home-school agreements to cease to apply in England. The

 

amendment substitutes a new paragraph 2 which provides for the requirement to cease to apply in

 

both England and Wales.
