The Regulations impose a requirement on the partners of claimants of certain benefits to take part in a work-focused interview where the claimant has been continuously entitled to the benefit for at least 26 weeks and it has been awarded at a higher rate referable to his or her partner.
As a result of carrying out in the tax year 2007–08 a review of the amounts specified in the Tax Credits Act 2002, section 41(2), and in accordance with section 41(1), the Treasury has determined that Regulations should be made prescribing increases in some of those sums.
The Regulations amend the Social Security (Industrial Injuries) (Prescribed Diseases) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1986, which prescribe diseases for which industrial injuries benefit is payable, by adding the disease nasopharyngeal cancer, as it relates to occupations involving working with wood, to the list of prescribed diseases in Part I of Schedule 1.
