These Regulations set out the weekly sums which local authorities are, in the absence of special circumstances, to asume that residents in accommodation arranged under Part III of the National Assistance Act 1948, the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968 or section 7 of the Mental Health (Scotland) Act 1984 will need for their personal requirements.
From 11th April 1994, all residents will be assumed to need £13.10 per week for their personal requirements, and for residents required to pay a protected amount calculated in accordance with Part III of Schedule 1 to the National Assistance (Assessment of Resources) Regulations 1992 for the period immediately before 11th April there is added to the allowance of £13.10 any attendance allowance, constant attendance allowance or care component of any disability living allowance, unless that amount is otherwise disregarded (regulation 2).
These Regulations supersede the National Assistance (Sums for Personal Requirements) Regulations 1993 (which provided for the sum residents were assumed to need from 1st April 1993) which are revoked.
