Draft Diocesan Boards of Education Measure clears Ecclesiastical Committee
It has now been confirmed that on 23rd February 2021 the Ecclesiastical Committee in Parliament deemed the draft Diocesan Boards of Education Measure expedient, which means that it is very likely it will receive Royal Assent and come into law in the early part of 2021.
Each diocesan board of education will now be giving consideration to:
- which of the models (standalone incorporated DBE, unincorporated standalone DBE and committee of the Board of Finance and joint DBE variations) it will want to adopt or maintain;
- what transfers of assets and liabilities to any new body might be required and how to achieve them;
- what the makeup of the DBE should be;
- how to make best use of the new powers that the Measure would give to it.
