Section 484 of the Education Act 1996 enables the National Assembly for Wales to make regulations providing for the payment of grants in respect of expenditure incurred by local education authorities for or in connection with educational purposes which it appears to the National Assembly those authorities should be encouraged to incur in the interests of education in Wales.

  • Regulations 6 to 8: set out the conditions which apply in respect of the payment of grants, including audit requirements. The date in regulation 6(5) for submitting a statement and auditor’s certificate to the National Assembly has been changed from 31 July to 31 October.
