These Regulations further amend the Income Support Regulations, the Jobseeker’s Allowance Regulations, the Housing Benefit (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987, the Social Security (Credits) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1975, the Social Fund Maternity and Funeral Expenses (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987, the Social Security (Claims and Payments) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987, the Social Security (Incapacity Benefit) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1994 and the Income-related Benefits and Jobseeker’s Allowance (Working Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003 to make further consequential provision and transitional arrangements in connection with the introduction of child tax credit and working tax credit by the 2002 Act.
