Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
The Regulations made by this instrument are made by virtue of provisions introduced by the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 (c. 49). The instrument is made before the end of the period of 6 months beginning with the coming into force of those provisions; the regulations in it are therefore exempted from the requirement in section 172(1) of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 (c. 5) to refer proposals to make these Regulations to the Social Security Advisory Committee and are made without reference to that Committee.
These Regulations amend the Child Benefit (General) Regulations 1976 (S.I. 1976/965) and prescribe additional conditions when section 146A of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992 (which disentitles persons who require leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom from receiving child benefit) will not apply (regulation 2).
Regulation 3 revokes a previous provision.
These Regulations do not impose a charge on business.
