Skills and Post-16 Education Bill — Clause 2 — Designation of Employer Representative Bodies — 21 Feb 2022 at 21:11
The majority of MPs voted not require the consent of the relevant local authority, Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and, where relevant, Mayoral Combined Authority before a body is designated the employer representative body for an area and given a role in developing the local skills improvement plan which public post-16 technical education or training providers would be required to have regard to.
The amendment rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- Amendment 14, page 3, line 15, after “England” insert
- “with the consent of the relevant local authority, Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and, where relevant, Mayoral Combined Authority”.
The rejected amendment was accompanied by the following explanatory statement from its proposer:
- This amendment provides for local authorities to give consent in the designation of employer representative bodies, to ensure employer representative bodies are representative of the areas they cover.
Had it not been rejected this amendment would have impacted Clause 2 of the Bill which provided for a minister to designate a body as the employer representative body for an area in England. The Bill provides for employer representative bodies to be given a role in the development of the local skills improvement plan which post-16 technical education or training providers funded by English public funds would be required to have regard to.
