Section 13 – Chargeable services
30.This section sets out the services to which this Measure applies and these services are defined as the “chargeable services”. These chargeable services are those services provided under the enactments specified in subsection (2). These include welfare services to elderly and vulnerable persons such as home care, day care centres, laundry, transport and meals. Residential care services were excluded from the scope of the enabling Legislative Competence Order and hence have been excluded from this Measure.
31.Subject to the restraints of matter 15.1 in Field 15 of Schedule 5 to GOWA 2006, section 13(3) enables the Welsh Ministers by order to add a service to, or to amend or remove the description of a service which is for the time being included in, section 13(2). Section 17(7) provides that such an order will be subject to the affirmative procedure.
