Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Section 143(2) of and paragraphs 1 and 5 of Schedule 11 to the Local Government Finance Act 1988 confer upon the Secretary of State the power to make regulations in relation to Valuation Tribunals. Insofar as they relate to Wales, these powers were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999. The principal regulations for Wales, made under these powers are the Valuation Tribunals (Wales) Regulations 1995 (“the 1995 Regulations”) as amended by the Valuation Tribunals (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2001 (“the 2001 Regulations”). These present Regulations make further provision in respect of Valuation Tribunals in Wales.

The 1995 Regulations make provisions in relation to the membership of Valuation Tribunals in Wales. Regulation 4(2)(d) provides that a member of a tribunal will cease to hold office once attaining the age of 72 years.

Regulation 7(1)(e) of the 1995 Regulations provides that a member shall be disqualified from being appointed or continuing to be a member if aged 72 years or more.

Regulation 3 of these Regulations amend the 1995 Regulations so that Regulations 4(2)(d) and 7(1)(e) are omitted. The effect of this amendment is that a member of a Valuation Tribunal in Wales will not cease to hold office or be disqualified from being appointed or continuing to be a member once attaining the age of 72 years.
