Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Eleventh Report


  5. The Committee draws the special attention of both Houses to these Regulations on the ground that they are defectively drafted.

  6. These Regulations make provision in relation to section 89 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. Regulation 6(2)(a) refers to selective admission arrangements as defined by section 104(4) of the 1998 Act. In response to a question by the Committee the Department for Education and Employment admit that the reference ought to have been to section 104(2) of the Act, and propose to amend the provision the next time the Regulations are amended (see Appendix IV). The Committee reports regulation 6(2)(a) for defective drafting, acknowledged by the Department.
