Learner Travel (Wales) Measure 2008

Section 22 – Amendments to sections 455 and 456 of the Education Act 1996

67.Section 22 makes amendments to sections 455 and 456 of the Education Act 1996. Section 455 permits charging and section 456 concerns the regulation of permitted charges. The amendments made by section 22 take account of the power granted by section 6 of the Measure for a local authority to charge for travel arrangements. Charging for those travel arrangements in respect of children of compulsory school age is subject to the rules in the 1996 Act. These include provision for a child’s parent to pay permitted charges and for authorities to determine a charging and remissions policy. The amendment made by subsection (3) allows the charge for travel arrangements provided in accordance with section 6 to exceed the cost of its provision.
