Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations empower the Secretary of State to pay recurrent and non-recurrent grants to colleges of education and central institutions in Scotland (known collectively as “the grant-aided colleges”). They prescribe the conditions of, and requirements relating to, the payment of grants.

The regulations which previously empowered the Secretary of State to pay grants to the grant-aided colleges are revoked by these Regulations.
