Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order, which applies to Wales, makes amendments to various provisions of subordinate legislation. The amendments are consequential upon the Civil Partnership Act 2004 (c. 33) (“the Act”). The Act, which comes into force on the same date as this Order, enables same-sex couples to form a civil partnership by registering as civil partners of each other (and certain overseas relationships registered abroad may be treated as civil partnerships). The Act makes provision for civil partners to be treated in the same way as spouses in relation to benefits and obligations.

The Schedule makes amendments to miscellaneous subordinate legislation.

Paragraph 1 amends the Welsh Development Agency (Compensation) Regulations 1976 (S.I. 1976/2107). Regulations 22, 23, 24, 28 and 31 (which concern payments of retirement compensation to pensionable officers and payments to the widows and dependants of such officers) are amended to include reference to surviving civil partners.

Paragraph 2 amends paragraph 17 of Schedule 3 to the Local Authorities' Cemeteries Order 1977 (S.I. 1977/204). Paragraph 17 is an interpretation provision and defines “relative” for the purposes of Schedule 3, which is concerned with the removal of tombstones and other memorials and the levelling of graves. Under Schedule 3, if a relative objects to proposals to remove a tombstone or other memorial or to levelling of a grave, a burial authority may not proceed in relation to that particular tombstone or grave, unless in particular circumstances the consent of the Secretary of State is obtained. The effect of the amendment is to include a civil partner within the definition of a relative.

Paragraph 3 amends the State Awards (State Bursaries for Adult Education) (Wales) Regulations 1979 (S.I. 1979/333), to include reference to a civil partner as an alternative to the term “spouse” where the term occurs in these Regulations.

Paragraph 4 amends the National Health Service (Travelling Expenses and Remission of Charges) Regulations 1988 (S.I. 1988/551). In regulation 2(1) the definition of “partner” is amended to include reference to a civil partner.

Paragraph 5 amends the National Health Service (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 1989 (S.I. 1989/306) to include reference to a civil partner as an alternative to the term “spouse” where the term occurs in these Regulations.

Paragraph 6 amends the Representation of the People (Welsh Forms) Order 1989 (S.I. 1989/429). Form 2 in Schedule 1 is a proxy paper for use where an elector appoints someone else to vote on their behalf in parliamentary elections in Wales. Note 4 to Form 2 (which provides that the person voting as proxy may not vote as proxy for more than two electors of whom that person is not a relative of one of the categories specified there) is amended to include reference to a civil partner.

Paragraph 7 amends the Valuation and Community Charge Tribunals Regulations 1989 (S.I. 1989/439) to include reference to a civil partner as an alternative to the term “spouse” where the term occurs in these Regulations.

Paragraph 8 amends the Council Tax (Additional Provisions for Discount Disregards) Regulations 1992 (S.I. 1992/552). Regulation 3(1) of these regulations sets out various classes of person for the purposes of Schedule 1 to the Local Government Finance Act 1992 (c. 14) (which provides that prescribed classes of person shall be disregarded for the purposes of council tax discount). In regulation 3(1), sub-paragraph (a) of Class E is amended to include reference to a civil partner. Paragraph 4(1) of the Schedule is amended to include reference to couples who live together as if they were civil partners.

Paragraph 9 amends the Council Tax (Exempt Dwellings) Order 1992 (S.I. 1992/558). Article 2(5) (which is an interpretation provision) is amended to include reference to a civil partner, civil partnership, and to couples living together as if they were civil partners. In article 3, Class N is amended to include reference to a civil partner.

Paragraph 10 amends the Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992 (S.I. 1992/613). In regulation 32 (which concerns the interpretation and application of Part VI of those Regulations), the definition of “net earnings” in paragraph (1) is amended to include reference to widowers or surviving civil partners. This means that the definition of net earnings is amended to exclude payments such as annuities to certain persons including a surviving civil partner. Regulation 58(1)(b) (which concerns outstanding liabilities on death), is amended to include reference to a civil partner. This means that a billing authority may recover outstanding council tax liabilities on the death of the council tax payer (when jointly and severally liable for council tax as a civil partner) from his executor or administrator. In this context, the reference to a civil partner includes a person who is living with another person of the same sex as if they were civil partners, by virtue of the reference in regulation 58 to section 9 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 (c. 14). Section 9 was amended by paragraph 140 of Schedule 27 to the Civil Partnership Act 2004 (c. 33) to include a reference to persons living together as if they were civil partners. The amendments to regulation 58 reflect provision that already exists for spouses.

Paragraph 11 amends the Valuation Tribunals (Wales) Regulations 1995 (S.I.1995/3056). Paragraphs 7(1)(f), 23(2) and 42(3) are amended to include reference to civil partners. Paragraph 7(1)(f) provides that a person is disqualified from being appointed a member of a tribunal, or continuing as a member, if their spouse or civil partner becomes an employee of that tribunal. Paragraph 23(2) provides that a person is disqualified from participating in the hearing or determination of, or acting as clerk or officer of a tribunal in relation to an appeal, if the appellant is their spouse or civil partner, or if that person supports the appellant financially. Paragraph 42(3) (which provides that a person shall be disqualified from participating as a member in the hearing or determination of, or acting as clerk or officer of a tribunal in relation to an appeal in certain circumstances) is amended to include reference to a civil partner.

Paragraph 12 amends the Housing Renewal Grants Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/2890). In regulation 2(1) the definitions of “close relative”,“family”, “member of a couple”, “partner”, and “unmarried couple” are amended to include reference to civil partnership. Paragraph 10A(1)(b) in Schedule 1 (which sets out the condition that must be satisfied for someone to be eligible for bereavement premium) is amended to include reference to the death of a civil partner who died on or after 9 April 2001. Paragraph 65 in Schedule 4 (which provides that certain payments made to compensate for the fact that the relevant person, or others connected with that person was a slave labourer, a forced slave labourer, had suffered property loss or personal injury or was a parent of a child who had died) is amended to include reference to a civil partner and a deceased civil partner.

Paragraph 13 amends the Council Tax (Prescribed Classes of Dwellings) Regulations 1998 (S.I. 1998/105).

Paragraph 2(4) of that Schedule (which provides that a person shall be treated as having a direct or indirect pecuniary interest in a contract, proposed contract or other matter if a relative living with him, to his knowledge has, or would be treated as having, such an interest, direct or indirect) is amended to include reference to a civil partner.

Paragraph 15 amends the Local Government (Early Termination of Employment) (Discretionary Compensation) (England and Wales) Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000/1410). Sub-paragraph (c)(iii) within the definition of “eligible child” is amended to include reference to an adopted child of a civil partner.
