(This note is not part of the Regulations)
Under the Community Charges (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1989 and the Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992, where a liability order has been made for the payment of community charge or council tax, certain steps for the enforcement of the liability may not be taken while deductions are being made for that purpose from any amount payable to the debtor by way of income support. These regulations amend both sets of Regulations so that this restriction also applies in respect of amounts payable by way of jobseeker’s allowance under Part I of the Jobseekers Act 1995.
S.I. 1989/438. Regulation 46 is amended by S.I. 1993/775. The reference in regulation 46 to the Income Support regulations is to the Community Charges (Deductions from Income Support) (No. 2) Regulations 1990 (S.I. 1990/545), amended by S.I. 1996/2344.
