Section 192 – Amendment of the National Assistance Act 1948

499.Section 192 provides for an amendment to section 49 of the National Assistance Act 1948. Section 49 of the 1948 Act applies where an officer of the local authority is appointed by the Court of Protection as a deputy. It provides a specific power for the local authority to pay the expenses incurred by the officer in connection with the exercise of their functions as a deputy. The effect of the amendment will be that this specific power will not apply to a local authority in Wales. Local authorities in Wales who wish to pay the expenses of a Court appointed deputy will be able to rely on their general powers under section 2 of the Local Government Act 2000.
