Correction of errors and setting aside of decisions

19.—(1) Regulations may make provision with respect to—

(a)the correction of accidental errors in any decision or record of a decision made under any relevant provision; and

(b)the setting aside of any such decision in a case where it appears just to set the decision aside on the ground that—

(ii)a party to the proceedings or a party’s representative was not present at a hearing related to the proceedings.

(a)any of the provisions of this Schedule;

(b)any of the provisions of Part VII of the Contributions and Benefits Act so far as they relate to housing benefit; or
