House of Lords Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee

The Committee have published a report drawing the Independent School Standards Regulations to the special attention of the House on the ground that there were inadequacies in the consultation process this summer.

The report is reassuring in that the Committee broadly accepted ISC’s submissions, and those of the Associations, and stated: “In our view, this fails to do justice to the concern felt by the schools affected, about the need for sufficient time to consider such changes and to prepare for their implementation which, as stated in the consultation document of 23 June, would be ‘taking effect from September 2014'".
