Senedd and Elections (Wales) Act 2020

Section 21 - Contents of service declarations

59.Section 21 amends the 2001 Regulations by modifying existing provision and making additional provision about the contents of a service declaration in cases where a declarant claims a service qualification under section 14(1A). Section 21(2)(a) amends regulation 15 so that a person claiming a service qualification under section 14(1A) is not subject to the requirement to provide information under regulation 15(1)(c) but is required to provide the information specified in regulation 15A.

60.Section 21 (2)(b) amends the meaning of “Government Department” in regulation 15(3) in relation to the registration of local government electors in Wales so that it includes any organisation in which a Crown servant works.

61.Section 21(3) inserts regulation 15A into the 2001 regulations. The regulation makes provision about the information required in a service declaration where a person is claiming a service qualification under section 14(1A). These include details of the applicant’s parent or guardian who has a service qualification. For example, a declaration made on the basis of a parent or guardian who is a member of the armed forces must include the service, rank or rating, and service number, and regiment or corps (where appropriate) of that parent or guardian.
