Section 80: Power to repeal school travel scheme provisions etc

402.This section requires the Secretary of State to prepare and publish an evaluation of schemes. Such an evaluation must be undertaken and published before 1 January 2012. The section also gives power to the Secretary of State to provide by order that the new provisions will cease to have effect. Such an order may contain transitional provisions and is subject to the requirement of the approval of both Houses of Parliament.

403.Subsections (3) and (4) provide that the earliest and latest dates on which the new provisions could cease to have effect are 1 August 2012 and 1 August 2015 respectively.

404.It is envisaged that an order under this section would be made if, as a result of the piloting of the new provisions under section 79, those provisions are not considered to be a success. If an order is not made, the new provisions will continue after the pilot is completed and there would then be no limit on the number of participating local education authorities.
