The Education (Fees and Awards) Act 1983 was introduced to make provision with respect to the fees to be charged by universities and other institutions to students not having the requisite connection with the United Kingdom and for the exclusion of such students from eligibility for certain discretionary awards, following the decision of the House of Lords in Rv. Barnet London Borough Council Ex parte Nilish Shah  2AC 309 that the phrase "ordinarily resident", in section 1 of the Education Act 1962 had a meaning other than that which it had previously been held to have. Regulations made under sections 1 and 3 of that Act were also changed in consequence of that decision.
The Block Grant (Education Adjustments) (England) Regulations 1985 (S.I. 1985/2030) included a new formula for calculating the contributions of local authorities in relation to expenditure on advanced further education, following the decision of the Divisional Court in R v.
