Social Security Fraud Act (Northern Ireland) 2001

Section 5: Supply of information

Section 5 amends section 116D(3) of the Administration Act by replacing the word “prescribed” with “specified in directions given by the Department or, as the case may be, the Secretary of State”.  Section 116D enables the Department and the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions to require the Housing Executive to supply to them information relating to housing benefit policy and administration.  It is intended that the Department or, as the case may be, the Secretary of State can specify the manner and form in which information is to be supplied under that section (or any other requirements relating to the supply of information) by way of directions rather than by regulations.
