(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These regulations amend the Employment Zones Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000/721) by changing the areas designated as employment zones from areas based on wards and electoral divisions to larger areas based on local authority districts. They also make clear that the boundaries of the zones correspond to the boundaries of the districts as they stand at the date these amending regulations are made and hence any boundary changes made in respect of the districts will not have the effect of changing the boundaries of the employment zones.
Had the areas of the zones not been changed an amendment to the principal Regulations would, in any event, have been required because of errors in the schedule.
These regulations are made within 6 months of the coming into force of section 60 of the Welfare Reform and Pensions Act 1999 and accordingly, by reason of section 173(5)(a) of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 (1992 c. 5), reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee by the Secretary of State of his proposal to make the regulations is not required notwithstanding the provisions contained in Sections 170 and 172 of that Act, as amended by paragraph 81(a) of Schedule 12 of the Welfare Reform and Pensions Act 1999.
