35

35.—(1) Where F29 [ an education and training board ] or an organisation specified in section 34(1)(b), (c) , or (d) does not comply with a condition attached to a grant under section 34 or a direction given under section 8(5) or (7), or the Minister considers that there are other good reasons for the withdrawal or reduction of the amount of the grant, the Minister may, subject to this section, withdraw or reduce the amount of the grant.

(2) Where the Minister proposes to withdraw or reduce the amount of a grant, and where the withdrawal or reduction exceeds such amount as the Minister may determine, the Minister shall inform the Assessor of Youth Work and F29 [ the education and training board ] or organisation, by notice in writing, that—

( a) the withdrawal or reduction is being considered, and

( b) the reasons for the proposed withdrawal or reduction.

(3) F29 [ The education and training board ] or organisation may, within 21 days beginning on the date when notice is given under subsection (2), or such longer period as the Minister may determine, make representations in writing to the Assessor of Youth Work giving reasons why, in its view, the proposed withdrawal or reduction is not warranted.

(4) The Assessor of Youth Work shall consider any representations made under subsection (3) and shall make a report to the Minister on the matter.

(5) Where the Minister, having considered the report of the Assessor of Youth Work, is of the opinion that a grant made under section 34 should be withdrawn or reduced, the Minister shall inform F29 [ the education and training board ] or organisation in writing of the withdrawal or reduction and the reasons therefor.
