To ask Her Majesty’s Government which individuals and bodies are charged with powers and responsibilities for (1) education, and (2) young people, in (a) Wales, (b) Scotland and (c) Northern Ireland, under the Government of Wales Act 1998, the Scotland Act 1998, and the Northern Ireland Act 1998; and what those powers and responsibilities are.
The Government of Wales 2006 Act provides that the National Assembly for Wales can make Acts in a number of fields including education and training and social welfare, as set out in Schedule 7 to the 2006 Act. The 2006 Act repealed Section 22 of the Government of Wales Act 1998.
The Northern Ireland Act 1998 did not expressly charge any individuals or bodies with powers or responsibilities for education.
Further details of the powers and responsibilities of the devolved administrations can be found on their websites.
