There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Social Security Administration (Fraud) Act 1997. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions. Use the ‘more’ link to open the changes and effects relevant to the provision you are viewing.
This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
(1)Sections 1 to 22 and the Schedules shall not come into force until such day as the Secretary of State may by order made by statutory instrument appoint.
(2)Different days may be appointed for different purposes.
(3)An order under this section may include such transitional provisions, consequential provisions or savings as the Secretary of State considers appropriate for the purposes of, or in connection with, the provisions to which it applies.
(4)An order under this section may provide that a provision of this Act is to come into force only in relation to an area specified in the order.
(5)Nothing in section 13 or 14 applies in relation to any act or omission occurring before the section comes into force.
(6)An order which provides that section 15 is to come into force only in relation to a specified area may also provide that (unless continued in force by a subsequent order) that section is to remain in force there only for a period specified in the order; and an order which so provides may include such transitional provisions, consequential provisions or savings as the Secretary of State considers appropriate in relation to that section’s ceasing to be in force in relation to that area at the end of that period.
(7)Section 15 does not apply in relation to an act or omission occurring in an area at a time when that section is not in force in relation to that area.
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
