Care Act 2014

Exercise of functions

642.Paragraph 4 enables the Secretary of State, through regulations, to give the LETBs additional functions relating to education and training and impose requirements about how those functions should be exercised.

643.Sub-paragraph (2) allows a LETB to do anything which it considers necessary or desirable to enable it to carry out its functions.

644.Sub-paragraph (3) provides that where HEE considers that a LETB is failing to exercise one or more of its functions, or there is a significant risk that it may do so, HEE must direct the LETB on the exercise of such functions.

645.Sub-paragraph (4) stipulates that where a LETB fails to comply with the direction under sub-paragraph (3), HEE may intervene as described under paragraph 2(4) of this Schedule, which means that HEE may appoint new members of the LETB, exercise functions on behalf of the LETB, or arrange for another LETB to represent providers of services in the area.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
