Statutory Instruments with Clear Reports

9 February 2015




CLA488 - The Education (Student Support) (Wales) Regulations 2015


Procedure:  Negative


These Regulations are required in order to underpin the higher education student support system for students (fee grants, fee loans, maintenance grants and maintenance loans) who are ordinarily resident in Wales and are taking designated higher education courses in respect of academic years beginning on or after 1 September 2015.  These Regulations replace the existing Education (Student Support) (Wales) Regulations 2013, as amended.



CLA489 - The Prohibition of Keeping or Release of Live Fish (Specified Species) (Wales) Order 2015


Procedure:  Negative


Article 3(1) prohibits the keeping or release in Wales, without a licence issued under the Import of Live Fish (England and Wales) Act 1980, of any species of live non-native freshwater fish, or the live eggs of any such fish, belonging to the taxonomic orders listed in the table in Part 1 of the Schedule.


This Order does not apply to inland waters, though corresponding provisions for those waters were made in the Keeping and Introduction of Fish (Wales) Regulations 2014.  It was not possible to include all the provisions in one instrument because the enabling Acts specified the use of regulations and an order respectively.
