(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Community Charges (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1989.
Regulation 8 is amended by the deletion of the reference to a constituent council of a police authority because by virtue of the constitution of police authorities as corporate bodies under the Police and Magistrates' Courts Act 1994 (c. 29) no local authority will obtain information in its capacity as such a council, and because no charging authority has had this capacity in relation to a police authority.
Regulation 33 is amended to provide that for the purpose of calculating the sum to be deducted under an attachment of earnings order, the employer shall disregard any deduction from the debtor’s earnings made by reason of the repayment by the debtor of a loan made to him by the employer.
