Section 117 - Charging for provision under sections 109 to 115
330.Section 117 contains a power for a local authority to impose a charge for support (other than the provision of advice) which it provides in accordance with sections 109 to 115 of the Act. Such a charge may only be imposed on the young person receiving the support if he or she is over 18, or on a person with parental responsibility for a young person receiving the support where that young person is under the age of 18. Subsection (3) provides that an adult is not liable to pay such a charge if they are in receipt of such benefit(s) as may be specified in regulations (which may be made by the Welsh Ministers in accordance with powers contained in subsection (3)).
331.Subsections (5) and (6) provide that the power to make regulations contained in Part 5 of the Act (in sections 61 or 62) applies to charges under this section, and that regulations may also apply any provision made in or under sections 63 to 68 and sections 70 to 73 (with or without modification) to a charge imposed under this section.
