Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Fifth Report

Second Memorandum by the Department for Social Security


The Committee requested a memorandum on the following point -

    Regulation 2(2)(d)(viii) provides for the substitution in regulation 10(6) of the principal Regulations of the word "section" for the words "sections 16". Given that the unamended regulation 10(6) requires the notification to include "information as to sections 16 and 19(1) of the Act", ought not the substitution to have removed the word "and"?

2. The Department agrees the words to be substituted should have been identified as "section 16 and". The Department apologises for this drafting error and will arrange to correct it at the earliest opportunity.
