Welfare Reform Act 2009

Consequential amendments

330.Paragraphs 3 and 4 of Schedule 3 make consequential amendments to the Jobseekers Act 1995. Paragraph 3(2) would enable the drugs provisions to be introduced gradually across different areas of Great Britain. Under sub-paragraph (3) all regulations made under Schedule A1 are subject to affirmative resolution. Paragraph 4 amends Schedule 3 to the Social Security Act 1998 so that there would be a right of appeal to a first-tier tribunal against a decision to impose a benefit sanction on a person who fails to comply with a requirement imposed by regulations under Schedule A1, for example by not complying with the terms of a rehabilitation plan.
