Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Fifth Report


APPENDIX III

First Memorandum by the Department for Social Security

CHILD SUPPORT (MISCELLANEOUS AMENDMENTS) (NO. 2) REGULATIONS 1998 (S.I. 1998/2799)

The Committee requested a memorandum on the following point -

    Regulation 2(2)(d)(viii) amends paragraph (6) of regulation 10 of the principal Regulations. Was paragraph (6) inserted by one of the "relevant amending instruments" cited in footnote (c) to regulation 1(2)? If this is not the case, please explain why the instrument in question is not mentioned in that footnote.

2. The regulations which are amended by regulation 2 of the Child Support (Miscellaneous Amendments) (No.2) Regulations 1998 are the Child Support (Maintenance Assessment Procedure) Regulations 1992, S.I. 1992/1813 ("the principal Regulations").

3. Paragraph (6) of regulation 10 of the principal Regulations was inserted by paragraph (7) of regulation 67 of the Child Support Departure Direction and Consequential Amendments Regulations 1996, S.I. 1996/2907. These regulations are not one of the "relevant amending instruments" cited in footnote (c) to regulation 1(2). The Department apologises for this omission, which was an oversight, and is making arrangements for a correction to be made in the annual volume.
