Vol. 368 No. 8

Written Answers. - Secondary Schools Rules and Programmes.


asked the Minister for Education the reason the Attorney General, in his direction of 28 May 1948, exempted the Rules and Programmes for Secondary Schools from the operation of subsection (1) of section 3 of the Statutory Instruments Act, 1947, since the said rules are of such character as affects the public generally, as provided for in subsection (1) (c) (ii) of section (ii) of that Act; and if he will make a statement on these exemption provisions in the context of 1986.

The Attorney General, in directing the exemption cited, was acting in the exercise of a statutory power conferred on him and I have no plans to alter the present position.
