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

Section 3: Monitoring and reporting as to statutory arrangements

Section 3 requires the Department for Communities to monitor and report on the operation of the welfare mitigation schemes under both Article 137 and Article 137A. The report is to be laid in the Assembly no later than 31 March 2025. The report will provide the basis for a future assessment of the continuing need for, or amendments to, the welfare mitigation schemes by means of an evaluation of the need to amend, revoke or introduce new legislation. In particular, this will include a view on the provision of a statutory extension beyond 31 March 2025 of those mitigation schemes other than the Social Sector Size Criteria.
