Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)
These Regulations further amend the Income Support (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987, the Housing Benefit (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987, the Family Credit (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987, the Disability Working Allowance (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 and the Jobseeker’s Allowance Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996.
Regulations 2 to 6, except so far as they relate to up-rating (see below), are consequential on recent changes made to student grants and loans. From the 1999/2000 academic year most students will be entitled to receive support for living costs from loans instead of from grants. Accordingly, regulations 2 to 6 amend the Regulations cited in the first paragraph above. The amendments provide that students can have certain book and travel expenses disregarded from the income assessed in respect of those loans. To avoid double counting, book and travel expenses will only be disregarded from a student’s grant income if the student does not have an amount treated as income because of an entitlement to receive a student loan.
Where no amount of a student’s grant income is paid with the intention of meeting the costs of books and equipment, the amount to be allowed in respect of those costs is increased from £295 to £303.
The amount to be allowed in respect of a student’s travel costs has been changed to a flat amount of £250 to reflect changes introduced by the Education (Student Support) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1999.
An amount will be allowed for the above costs whether or not the costs are actually incurred by a student.
The Regulations provide that a student’s loan income shall include loans actually made, those that would be made if applied for and any contributions that have been taken into account in making a student loan.
Regulations 5(2) and 6(2), in respect of family credit and disability working allowance, amend the definition of “contribution” to mirror the definition that applies in the other benefits covered by these Regulations. These amendments allow contributions to be claimed in respect of Scottish students' allowances and bursaries.
Regulation 4(3), in respect of Housing Benefit only, increases the amount of the deduction to be made in calculating a student’s eligible rent.
In so far as these Regulations are required, for the purposes of regulation 4, to be referred to the Social Security Advisory Committee under section 149(2) of the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) 1992, (“the 1992 Act”), after agreement by the Social Security Advisory Committee, they have not been so referred by virtue of section 150(1)(b) of that Act. Otherwise they make in relation to Northern Ireland only provision corresponding to provision contained in Regulations made by the Secretary of State for Social Security in relation to Great Britain and accordingly, by virtue of section 149(3) of, and paragraph 10 of Schedule 5 to, the 1992 Act, are not subject to the requirement of section 149(2) of that Act for prior reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee.
