Part II of the Education (Scotland) Act 1996 provides for the making of grants to providers of education for children under school age. Section 26(2) authorises the Secretary of State to supply to civil servants and others in the Scottish Office, and to those engaged in the exercise of any function relating to the making of these grants, such “social security information” as the person may require for or in connection with the exercise of that function.
These Regulations prescribe information relating to a claim for, or the adjudication of a claim for, child benefit as “social security information” for this purpose.
