Section 195 – Disputes about ordinary residence and portability of care and support

510.Section 195 provides for the Welsh Ministers or a person appointed by them to settle disputes about where a person is ordinarily resident in Wales and about the application of section 56 (Portability of care and support) to a person. Regulations may make further provision, for example, to ensure that care and support needs are met while the dispute is being resolved, and to set out the procedure for referring the dispute to the Welsh Ministers or appointed person (including the steps the local authorities are required to take before a referral is made). This section derives from provision which is made in section 32 of the National Assistance Act 1948 and section 30 of the Children Act 1989.
