(This note is not part of the Order)
Section 69(5) of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 provides that the Welsh Ministers may, by order, confer or impose on the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales such supplementary functions relating to the provision of education as they think fit.
This Order confers supplementary functions on the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales. It revokes the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (Supplementary Functions) Order 2011 and restates it taking account of amendments made to the Assembly Learning Grants and Loans (Higher Education) (Wales) (No.2) Regulations 2011.
The functions conferred by this Order are functions exercisable by the Welsh Ministers in regulations made under section 22 of the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998 which relate to the payment of tuition fee grant to higher education institutions (and the recovery of such grant) in respect of students starting designated higher education courses on or after 1 September 2012.
The functions of the Secretary of State under section 69(5) were transferred, so far as exercisable in relation to Wales, to the National Assembly for Wales by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672). By virtue of section 162 of, and paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to, the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c. 32) those functions are exercisable by the Welsh Ministers.
S.I. 2011/886 (W.130).
