HL Deb 27 September 2000 vol 616 cc165-6WA
Baroness Darcy De Knayth

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, with regard to the proposed changes to the 1994 Special Educational Needs regulations and code of practice, there is any change in meaning or legal duty intended in the change of terminology whereby in both documents the word "specify" is replaced with the words "set out". [HL3525]

The Minister of State, Department for Education and Employment (Baroness Blackstone)

The legal duty remains the same. The changes proposed to the regulations and code of practice are intended to simplify the language used.
