Tax Credits Act 2002

Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992

177.Paragraph 8 mirrors the amendment made in paragraph 2 by removing the power to deduct overpaid child benefit or guardian’s allowance from other social security benefits payable under Northern Ireland legislation.

178.Paragraph 9 ensures that where an order is made in Great Britain up-rating child benefit or guardian’s allowance, or where a mistake in the calculation of the rate of these benefits is rectified by the Treasury under its power to do so by regulations, the effect of the change is mirrored in Northern Ireland.
