in the following respects—

The Income Support and Jobseeker’s Allowance Regulations are amended with respect to the treatment of instalments of grant awards for former students and the calculation of notional income and income other than earnings (regulations 8 and 9).
The Jobseeker’s Allowance Regulations are amended by extending the meaning of “period of interruption of employment” which is to form part of jobseeking periods and so as to provide that in relation to linked periods which span 6th October 1996, days of unemployment which form part of a period of interruption of employment, shall be treated as a jobseeking period in certain circumstances where such linked periods had already ended before 1st December 1997 (regulation 10).
