EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006 (S.I. 2006/932).

The amendment to paragraph 7(3)(d) of Schedule 3 to those Regulations ensures that an injury pension is not reduced in respect of second or subsequent post retirement entitlements to employment and support allowance. New paragraph 7(3)(e) of Schedule 3 has the effect that there is no reduction in respect of employment and support allowance in circumstances where there has been a previous reduction of an individual’s injury pension on the basis of entitlement to incapacity benefit and post retirement the individual has a subsequent new entitlement to employment and support allowance.

Section 1(5) of the Police Pensions Act 1976 (c. 35) enables these Regulations to make retrospective provision and these amendments have effect from 10th February 2017.

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no significant impact on the private, voluntary or public sectors is foreseen.
