Approval of awards to persons under a disability

14.—(1) Where—

(a)the Secretary of State determines the amount of compensation payable on an application under Article 4; and

(b)all or part of that compensation is payable to any person who at the date of the determination is a person under a disability,

none of that compensation shall be paid by the Secretary of State unless the determination is approved by the county court on an application made in accordance with county court rules by or on behalf of the person under disability or any other person to whom any of the compensation is payable.

(2) On an application under paragraph (1), the county court—

(a)shall, if it is satisfied that the determination is in the interests of the person under a disability, approve the determination;

(b)shall, if it is not so satisfied, make such an order as it could have made under Article 16 if there had been an appeal to it against that determination, and, in either case, may make such an order as to the apportionment, investment or payment of the compensation as appears to it to be just.
