Jurors entitled to income support on the relevant day

10.—(1) This regulation applies to a person who in the benefit week which includes the relevant day was a juror and—

(a)was entitled to income support without satisfying the requirement that he be available for employment in that week by virtue of regulation 8(1) of, and paragraph 17 of Schedule 1 to, the Income Support Regulations(1) (persons not required to be available for employment);

(b)immediately before commencing his duties as a juror was entitled to income support where the applicable amount was reduced in accordance with regulation 22 of the Income Support Regulations(2) (reductions in applicable amounts in certain cases of actual or notional unemployment benefit disqualification), and

(c)before the benefit week which includes 6th April 1997, he ceases to be a juror.

(2) When the person to whom paragraph (1) applies ceases to be a juror—

(a)his award of income support shall terminate at the end of the benefit week in which he ceases to be a juror, and

(b)he shall be treated as having been awarded an income-based jobseeker’s allowance for a period commencing on the first day of the benefit week which follows the benefit week in which his award of income support is terminated.

(3) Where an amount prescribed in accordance with Article 6(5) of the Order (amount payable by way of a jobseeker’s allowance) which is applicable in the case of a person treated as having been awarded an income-based jobseeker’s allowance under paragraph (2)(b) is less than the amount which was applicable for the purpose of his award of income support under Schedule 2 or, as the case may be, Schedule 7 to the Income Support Regulations, reduced in accordance with regulation 22 of those regulations, in the last benefit week to which his applicable amount was subject to such a reduction, then the higher amount which was applicable in the award of income support shall also be applicable for the purposes of determining the amount of income-based jobseeker’s allowance payable in his case.

(4) An award having effect in accordance with this regulation shall continue until such date as the claimant fails to satisfy, or in respect of which he ceases to be treated as satisfying, any condition of entitlement which applies in his case, or if earlier, until the end of the benefit week which includes 6th April 1997.
