These Regulations further amend the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987; they correct a typographical error in regulation 2A which provides for exemptions from the requirement to supply information relating to national insurance numbers.
These Regulations are made before the end of six months beginning with the coming into force of section 19 of the Social Security Administration (Fraud) Act 1997; they are accordingly exempt from referral to the Social Security Advisory Committee under section 173(5)(b) of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 and have not been so referred.
These Regulations do not impose any costs on business.
