1.The Committee has asked for a Memorandum from the Department for Education as follows:
Explain why hard copies of Ofqual’s Register of Qualifications are not made available for inspection.
2.The Department is grateful to the Committee for drawing attention to this matter. We agree that it should have been made clear that hard copies are available from the Department on request. We will make this clear on the relevant government website and will explore with the SI Registrar whether it is appropriate to revise the Explanatory Note by way of a correction slip.
3.We will ensure that in future we draft in accordance with Statutory Instrument Practice in this respect.
