Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Education (Grants) (Travellers and Displaced Persons) Regulations 1993.
The rate of grant in England is reduced from 75 per cent. to 65 per cent.. The rate of grant in Wales remains at 75 per cent..
Regulation 3 is also amended as a consequence of the extension of section 11 of the Local Government Act 1966 to allow grants to be paid for the benefit of all ethnic minorities under that power, so as to provide that no provision for refugees and displaced persons in respect of which grant is paid under section 11 of the Local Government Act 1966 is eligible for grant under section 210 of the Education Reform Act 1988.
The Regulations also make transitional provision.
