Part 4 - Category A and Category C retirement pensions: abolition of adult dependency increases

Paragraphs 12 to 16 remove references to adult dependency increases in sections 30B(3), 78(4), 88, 89(1) and (1A) and 114(4) of the Contributions and Benefits Act which are redundant following the abolition of those increases.

Paragraph 17 removes the redundant references to section 83(2) and (3) in section 145(3) of that Act which deals with circumstances in which a person is treated as being entitled to an adult dependency increase for the purposes of establishing entitlement to a Christmas bonus.

Paragraph 18 amends paragraphs 5 and 6 of Part 4 of Schedule 4 to that Act to remove redundant references to the rates at which adult dependency increases of Category A and C pensions are payable.
