EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal (Composition of Tribunal) Order 2008/2835 (the 2008 Order).

Article 2 inserts a definition of practice direction.

Article 3 substitutes a new article 2 to provide that the number of members of tribunal panels in the First-tier Tribunal is to be one, two or three, as determined by the Senior President of Tribunals by practice direction; provide that the Senior President of Tribunals has to have with regard to the nature of the matter that falls to be decided and the means by which it is to be determined; provide (as already was the case) that the Senior President of Tribunals has to have regard to the need for tribunal members to have particular expertise, skills or knowledge; and omit the need to have regard to historic panel composition (previously in article 2(2)(a) of the 2008 Order).

Article 4 amends article 3 of the 2008 Order to ensure that panel composition in the Upper Tribunal is set by way of a practice direction when the Senior President of Tribunals sets panel composition at two or three members.

Article 5 ensures that practice statements published by the Senior President of Tribunals which set out arrangements for panel composition continue to apply until such time as they are superseded.

Asesiadau Effaith

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
