2008 CHAPTER 13

15 December 2008

Introduction

1.These explanatory notes relate to the Pensions (No. 2) Act (Northern Ireland) 2008. They have been prepared by the Department for Social Development in order to assist the reader in understanding the Act. They do not form part of the Act and have not been endorsed by the Assembly.

2.The notes need to be read in conjunction with the Act. They are not, and are not meant to be, a comprehensive description of the Act. So where a section or part of a section (or Schedule) does not seem to require an explanation or comment, none is given.
