Minutes:

The Committee took evidence from the Member in charge of the Bill, the Minister for Education and Skills, and his officials.

The Minister agreed to provide a note on the following:

Given that the Bill as drafted does not require all the regulations specified to be made ‘must’ by the Welsh Ministers, can the Minister confirm if there is sufficient legislative provision in the Bill to enable HEFCW to undertake all of its functions effectively and deliver all the Welsh Government’s policy intentions;

Clarification on points raised in the evidence from HEW regarding Power to refuse to approve a fee and access plan and;

 

A definition as to  what the term ‘provided’ within S17 means and clarification  on the validation programmes overseas / courses validated by an institution from Wales / courses validated at an institution overseas, outside Wales, but not necessarily a franchise.
