(k)regulations within the scope of section 179(5)(10) of the Social Security Administration Act 1992.

(3) Paragraph (1) does not modify legislation in so far as it would be within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament to make such modifications, unless regulation 3 of the Scotland Act 2016 (Transitional) Regulations 2017(11) applies to functions conferred on a Minister of the Crown in respect of that devolved competence.

(4) Paragraph (1) also modifies Part 2 of the Social Security Contributions (Transfer of Functions, etc) (Northern Ireland) Order 1999 so far as such provision relates to Northern Ireland(12).

(1)

No modifications are made in respect of community charge benefits, payments out of the social fund, Christmas bonus, statutory sick pay, or statutory maternity pay because the power in section 179(4)(b)(i)-(v) of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 excludes these benefits from the scope of the power.
