    (b)

    a disability which either prevents or hinders that person from using facilities of a kind provided at relevant places,

    but a person is not to be taken as having a learning difficulty solely because the language (or form of the language) in which the person is taught or will be taught is different from a language (or form of a language) which has at any time been spoken in the person’s home;

  • “local authority” (“awdurdod lleol”) means a local education authority in Wales; but in any reference to a child looked after by a local authority it means a council of a county or county borough in Wales exercising social services functions within the meaning of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970 (c. 42);

    a student enrolled at an institution within the further education sector,

(2)References in this Measure to a child who is looked after by a local authority have the same meaning as they have in section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989 (c. 41).

(3)Subject to subsection (4), the Education Act 1996 and the provisions of this Measure are to be read as if those provisions were contained in the Education Act 1996.

(4)Where an expression is given for the purposes of any provision of this Measure a meaning different from that given to it for the purposes of the Education Act 1996, the meaning given for the purposes of that provision is to apply instead of the one given for the purposes of that Act.
