Provisions for adjusting benefit for part of a week

14.  (1)  Where an adjustment falls to be made under these regulations for a part of a week, any benefit (whether under the Act or otherwise) which is not payable for that week at a daily rate equal to one-sixth of the appropriate weekly rate for each day of the week except Sunday, shall be deemed to be so payable.

(2) Where the benefit in question is unemployment benefit, sickness benefit, invalidity benefit or non-contributory invalidity pension and the beneficiary is a person in whose case the day to be disregarded in accordance with regulations made under section 17(1)(e) is a day other than Sunday, the reference in paragraph (1) to Sunday shall be construed as a reference to that other day.

(3) In paragraph (1) “appropriate weekly rate” means the weekly rate at which the benefit in question would be payable but for these regulations.
