Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Social Fund Cold Weather Payments (General) Regulations 1988 (S.I. 1988/1724 as amended) (“the principal Regulations”).
In particular, they substitute the list of weather stations and applicable postcode districts in Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations with a new list which largely re-enacts the list in the former Schedule 1 but which also replaces four weather stations, adds a new weather station to the scheme and enacts certain other changes to postcodes and to weather station linkages (regulation 2 and Schedule 1).
Regulation 3 of, and Schedule 2 to, these Regulations replace Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations to take account of the fact that three of the specified alternative stations from last winter are no longer required as alternative stations due to the replacement of some stations from Schedule 1 for this winter’s scheme.
The Postcode Atlas of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the postcode maps may be obtained from their publishers. A person may establish the current postcode for their address by contacting the Royal Mail Postcode Enquiries office (tel. no. 0345 111222).
These Regulations do not impose a charge on business.
