EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made under section 198 of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 (“the 2014 Act”). They make consequential amendments to primary legislation which are in addition to amendments made in the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 (Consequential Amendments) Regulations 2016.

Regulation 2 of these Regulations amends the Children Act 1989 by disapplying section 25C(2) in relation to Wales.

Regulation 3 amends section 2(6)(c) of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 by replacing the reference to “section 6 of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970” with “section 144 of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014”.

The Children and Families Act 2014 introduced a “child arrangements order”, replacing residence and contact orders. Regulation 4 amends the 2014 Act by replacing references in sections 76 and 81 to “residence order” with “child arrangements order” to reflect this change.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result, it was not considered necessary to carry out a regulatory impact assessment as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations.
