Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)

These Regulations amend regulation 16B of the Child Benefit (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1979 (S.R. 1979 No. 5). Besides making a minor technical amendment (regulation 2(a)), they prescribe additional conditions when section 142A of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (c. 7) (which disentitles persons who require leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom from receiving child benefit) will not apply (regulation 2(b)).

Regulation 3 revokes a previous provision.

These Regulations are made in consequence of section 10 of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 (c. 49) which inserted section 142A into the Contributions and Benefits (Northern Ireland) Act 1992. Section 10 came into operation on 19th August 1996 by virtue of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 (Commencement No. 2) Order 1996 (S.I. 1996/2127 (C. 50)). The Regulations are made within 6 months of the coming into force of section 10 and accordingly are exempt, by virtue of section 150(5)(b) of the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (c. 8), from reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee.
