Education – Local education authority. The respondent Welsh Minister, as part of fulfilling his powers and duties under Learning and Skills Act 2000, published a policy (the Policy) setting out how placement decisions would be taken for young people with learning difficulties at specialist educational establishments. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held, that the policy was not unlawful and had not acted as an unlawful fetter of the discretion of the Welsh Minister when making decisions about the appellant's (a young adult with severe and complex learning difficulties) education needs.
