Memorandum by the Department for Education
EAST MANCHESTER EDUCATION ACTION ZONE (VARIATION)
ORDER 2000 (S.I. 2000/3326)
1. The Joint Committee requested by letter of 24
January 2001 the submission of a memorandum on the following point:
"New article 9A(b) (inserted
by article 2(3)) provides that a member of the Forum appointed
pursuant to article 4(a) may be removed from office by the Forum
if any of the schools referred to in "those paragraphs"
are discontinued. Given that new article 9A(b) refers only to
paragraph (a) of Article 4, explain the reference to the words
quoted. If some words have been unintentionally omitted, identify
2. The words "those paragraphs" in article
2(3) of the above Order are incorrect and should read "that
paragraph". No words have been omitted.
3. The department accepts that the drafting is defective
and will aim to eliminate such defects in future statutory instruments.
