EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Part II of the Local Government Act 2000 provides for the discharge of a local authority’s functions by an executive of an authority (which must take one of the forms specified in section 11 of that Act) unless those functions are not to be the responsibility of the authority’s executive. The Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Functions and Responsibilities) (Wales) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/399 (W.45)) (“the Principal Regulations”) specify those functions that are not to be the responsibility of an authority’s executive or are to be the responsibility of such an executive only to a limited extent or only in specified circumstances.

These Regulations amend the Principal Regulations.

Schedule 1 to the Principal Regulations lists those functions which are not to be the responsibility of an authority’s executive. Regulation 3 of these Regulations amends this list by adding functions in respect of powers to promote or oppose private bills pursuant to sections 52 and 53 of the Local Government (Democracy) (Wales) Act 2013. Regulation 3 of these Regulations also amends this list by adding functions in respect of the Family Absence for Members of Local Authorities (Wales) Regulations 2013.

The effect of these amendments is that the functions in question cannot be the responsibility of an authority’s executive.

(1)

2000 c.22. Section 13 of the Local Government Act 2000 was amended by the Localism Act 2011 and references to the Welsh Minsters in section 13 of the Local Government Act 2000 were substituted by section 22 of, and paragraphs 8, 13(1) and (3) of Schedule 3 to, that Act.
