In the Disability Working Allowance Regulations provision is made with respect to the period over which a person’s weekly income is to be determined and the Family Credit Regulations are amended with respect to the calculation of a student’s grant income. Those Regulations are also amended with respect to the treatment of overlapping awards of those benefits (regulations 2 and 3).
In the Family Credit Regulations the definitions of “person affected” and “young individual” (regulation 4(2)(b) and (c)) and the manner in which a student’s covenant income is calculated are amended (regulation 4(6) and (7)).
The Family Credit Regulations and the Income Support Regulations are amended with respect to—

The Income Support Regulations are amended—
(a)with respect to payment of benefit to persons temporarily absent from Northern Ireland and the entitlement of persons from abroad (regulation 5(3));
(b)with respect to the treatment of a partner of a claimant for income support as engaged in remunerative work where that partner is engaged in such work for at least 24 hours per week (regulation 5(4));

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.
