These regulations further amend the Social Security Benefit (Dependency) Regulations 1977. They are, in the main, consequential upon the Social Security Act 1980 (Commencement No. 4) Order 1984 (S.I. 1984/1492), bringing into effect paragraph 4 of the Part I of Schedule 1 to the Social Security Act 1980. The regulations insert a new paragraph (5) into regulation 3 of the 1977 Regulations, relating to the meaning of the word “spouse” in that regulation. They substitute for the reference to a female person in regulations 4A(4), 4B(1), 10 and 11 of the 1977 Regulations references to a person having the care of a child.
The regulations revoke regulation 4A(2) of the 1977 Regulations whereby in certain circumstances a man may be treated as being entitled to child benefit in respect of a child of his who is not living with him but provide a saving for those men who were so treated immediately before the revocation. Regulation 15A of the 1977 Regulations, which is spent, is also revoked.
