Tribunal Procedure (Amendment No. 3) Rules 2014
These rules amend the Tribunal Procedure (First-tier Tribunal) (Health, Education and Social Care Chamber) Rules 2008, from 1/9/14, in ways which are not directly relevant to mental health cases.
Extract from Explanatory NotesRules 19 to 28 amend the rules of the Health, Education and Social Care Chamber of the First-tier Tribunal. They relate to changes made by Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 (c. 6) (children and young people in England with special educational needs or disabilities) and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 (S.I. 2014/1530) made under that Act. They make provision, in particular, where young persons bring appeals themselves in cases relating to special educational needs or disability discrimination in schools, for matters such as the need for permission to appeal if no mediation certificate has been issued, the time limits for appealing, and they cover matters such as their right to be represented, attend the hearing, give evidence and make submissions to the Tribunal. A related saving provision is contained in rule 38.
