Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Social Security (Severe Disablement Allowance (Amendment) and Local Councillors Consequential) Regulations 1989. They provide for the calculation of a councillor’s basic allowance for the purposes of severe disablement allowance, sickness benefit, invalidity benefit or an invalidity pension under section 15 or section 16 of the Social Security Pensions Act 1975 (c. 60). They are made as a consequence of the amendment to Schedule 8 to the Social Security Act 1989 by Schedule 11 to the Local Government and Housing Act 1989. That Act introduced a basic allowance for councillors which is payable in addition to an attendance allowance and a special responsibility allowance.
