S.I. No. 139 of 2013.

SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED SUPPLEMENTARY WELFARE ALLOWANCE) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 1) (RENT AND MORTGAGE SUPPLEMENT) REGULATIONS 2013

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)

The Social Welfare (Consolidated Supplementary Welfare Allowance) (Amendment) (No. 2) (Rent and Mortgage Supplement) Regulations 2012 contained an error in the reference to the statutory powers that were used to make those Regulations. These Regulations revoke the 2012 Regulations, re-enact the provisions that were contained in those Regulations and reference the correct statutory powers for the making of the Regulations.

The provisions contained in these Regulations amend the conditions applying to the Rent and Mortgage Interest Supplement schemes payable under the Supplementary
Welfare Allowance scheme by—

  1. providing that it is a requirement for an applicant for the rent supplement to apply to a housing authority for a social housing assessment, on being required to do so by a designated officer, and
  2. removing the condition applying to the mortgage interest supplement
    scheme which provides that the supplement will be discontinued
    where the property is offered for sale.
