Education (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 31 - General interpretation

59.Subsection (1) defines terms used in the Measure. Subsection (2) provides that the Measure is to be read as one with the Education Act 1996. This means that the definitions in that Act are to be read across into this Measure, and the general provisions in that Act apply to the Measure. For example the “education functions” of a local authority are set out in Schedule 36A to the Education Act 1996, and that definition therefore applies to the term when used in this Measure. The definitions set out in the Measure take precedence over any used in the Education Act 1996 if there is a difference in meaning (subsection (3)).
