Education and Inspections Act 2006

Section 180: Functions to be exercisable by National Assembly for Wales

709.Most of the functions of the Secretary of State under education legislation have, so far as they relate to Wales, been transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by Order in Council under section 22 of the Government of Wales Act 1998 (c. 38). Textual amendments to reflect this have not always been made to the legislation. Some legislation therefore continues to refer to the Secretary of State only, but references to the Secretary of State have to be read, in relation to Wales, as references to the National Assembly for Wales.

710.This section ensures that any functions conferred on the Secretary of State under the sections listed in subsection (2) so far as exercisable in relation to Wales are taken to have been transferred to the Assembly by such an Order.
