First Memorandum by the Department for
1998 (S.I. 1998/2799)
The Committee requested a memorandum on the following
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.
