Education Act 2011


45.Section 65 deals with consequential amendments arising from AA 2010 to UK-wide legislation that refers to “Academy arrangements” (the Finance Act 2003 and the Equality Act 2010), but as Academies only exist in England, it has no effect elsewhere.

46.Sections 66, 67 and 68 deal with the abolition of the YPLA. Although this is an England only body, it has power to deliver services in Scotland, both to the Scottish Ministers and to other persons specified by them by order. Section 66 repeals this power along with the other provisions that established the YPLA. The Scottish Parliament has passed a legislative consent motion to cover this change.
