EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
    These Regulations, which come into force on 28th August 1992, amend the Education (Grant) (Music and Ballet Schools) Regulations 1989.
    The Choir schools at Durham and Exeter are included in the choir schools specified by regulation 8D(1)(a) of the 1989 Regulations. Two schools are omitted from the list of Choir Schools in Schedule 2A to those Regulations (regulations 2 and 12).
    Redundant wording relating to the grant of asylum in circumstances where this is no longer done has been removed (regulation 3).
    Provisions in paragraphs 5 and 10(2) of Schedule 1 to the 1989 Regulations (the Aided Pupil Scheme) relating to fees required to be paid in pursuance of an order of a court are extended to cover fees required to be paid in pursuance of a deed of separation (regulations 4 and 6).
    The reductions to be made in relevant income in respect of dependent relatives pursuant to paragraphs 8(3) and (4) of the Aided Pupil Scheme are increased so that the minimum reduction is now set at £1,105 in place of £1,065 (regulation 5).
    The means test for the remission of fees is relaxed; the level at income at or below which fees are to be wholly remitted is set at £7,795 instead of £7,501 in respect of boarding pupils and £9,800 instead of £9,429 in respect of day pupils, with corresponding increases in the extent of remission where relevant income exceeds that sum (regulations 7 and 8). The means tests for uniform grants and school travel grants have also been relaxed (regulations 9 and 10).
    References to the relevant income tax legislation the Appendix to the Aided Pupil Scheme are updated so as to discount deductions from total income allowed on fees for vocational training (regulation 11).
