(2) A scheme made under this Part must not provide for the payment of —

(a)a care allowance in respect of any child over the age of fifteen years or dependant unless the member satisfies the authority that the child or dependant required supervision which has caused the member to incur expenses that were necessary in respect of the care of that child or dependant in the carrying out of that members duties as a member;

(b)a care allowance to more than one member of the authority in relation to the care of the same child or dependant; or

(c)more than one care allowance to any member of the authority who is unable to demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the authority that the member has to make separate arrangements for the care of different children or dependants.

(3) The amount of entitlement in respect of a member who is a councillor of an authority by way of care allowance must not, subject to regulation 11 and paragraphs (1) to (3) of regulation 12, exceed the amount prescribed by the Panel for that authority in—
