EXPLANATORY NOTE

This note is not part of the Regulations)
    These Regulations amend the St Mary's Music School (Aided Places) Regulations 1989 (the principal Regulations) to uprate the qualifying income levels for the remission of fees and charges and making of grants under the aided places scheme, and in certain other respects.
    The level of income at or below which fees are wholly remitted is increased from £7,736 to £8,077 for boarders and from £9,726 to £10,157 for day pupils, with corresponding increases in the extent of remission where the relevant income exceeds these sums (regulations 2 and 3). The qualifying income levels for clothing grants and school travel grants are also uprated (regulations 4 and 5).
    The list of tax reliefs in the Appendix to Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations is updated so as to include a further relief introduced by the Finance Act 1991 (regulation 6). This list specifies reliefs which are not to be deducted in determining a person's income for the purposes of the aided places scheme.
