5.—(1) Paragraph (2) applies where—

(a)before 1st April 2014 a local authority has offered to make a payment under section 12B of the 1968 Act (direct payments in respect of community care services) to a person; and

(b)the person has consented or consent has been duly given on the person’s behalf.
