Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Education (Reorganisation in Inner London) (Compen sation) Regulations 1989 (“the principal Regulations”) which make provision for the payment of compensation in cases falling within section 173(1) and (2) of the Education Reform Act 1988 (c. 40) (certain persons suffering loss of employment with the Inner London Education Authority or the London Residuary Body, or loss or diminution of emoluments, attributable to provision made by or under Part III of that Act).
The definition of “qualifying employment” in regulation 1(3) is amended so as to include employment with the governing bodies of grant-maintained and grant-maintained special schools and with further education corporations. This amendment will confer entitlement to compensation under Part III of the principal Regulations (loss or diminution of emoluments) to persons who, having been employed by the Inner London Education Authority or the London Residuary Body, and who otherwise are entitled to compensation under that Part, are employed by the governing body of a grant-maintained school or a grant-maintained special school or by a further education corporation.
Specific provision is made in relation to periods of employment with such statutory corporations occurring before these Regulations come into force.
