EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

This Statutory Rule contains only regulations made by virtue of Articles 12 and 13 of and paragraph 23 of Schedule 1 to the Work and Families (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 (S.I. 2006/1947 (N.I. 16)), provisions which come into operation on 3rd August 2010. The Rule is made before the end of the period of 6 months beginning with the coming into operation of those provisions. The regulations in it are therefore exempted by section 150(5)(b) of the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (1992 c. 8) from the requirement under section 149 of that Act to refer the proposals to make regulations to the Social Security Advisory Committee. They are therefore made without reference to the Committee.

These Regulations set the weekly rates for additional statutory paternity pay payable under Part 12ZA (ordinary and additional statutory paternity pay) of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (1992 c. 7), as amended by the Work and Families (Northern Ireland) Order 2006.

Regulation 2 sets the weekly rate of payment of additional statutory paternity pay at the smaller of £124.88 and 90% of the employee’s normal weekly earnings. Regulation 3 provides for the rounding of fractional amounts.
