Welfare Supplementary Payments (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2022

Section 2: Deemed effect of certain pre-existing provisions

Section 2 clarifies that Article 137A and any regulations made thereunder have had continuous effect from 31 March 2020 (subject to the amendment made by the Act). However, no payments are to be made under the amended Article 137A for the period between 31 March 2020 and the date on which the Act comes into operation. This will ensure that a person who has already received non-statutory mitigation payments during this period cannot become entitled to further payments under Article 137A in respect of the same period.
