Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Second Report



APPENDIX 5

Memorandum by the Department of Social Security

HOUSING BENEFIT (GENERAL) AMENDMENT (NO. 3) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/2734)

  1. In his letter of 10th November 1999 to the Department of Social Security the Clerk to the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments asked for a memorandum on the following point:

      "Regulation 5 inserts new paragraphs (5A) to (5E) after paragraph (5) of regulation 11 of the 1987 Regulations. Confirm that the reference in new paragraph (5A) to "paragraphs (5B) to (5F)" ought to have been a reference to paragraphs (5B) to (5E)".

  2. We thank the Committee for drawing this matter to our attention. We confirm that the reference should be to "paragraphs (5B) to (5E)", and will ensure that this is corrected at the earliest opportunity, and before the Regulations come into force.

25th November 1999
