The Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC) has been asked by the social security secretary to consider draft regulations which introduce further limits on the entitlement to benefits of some people from abroad.
The changes would affect in particular certain asylum seekers and sponsored immigrants. The proposed regulations also make some changes to the availability of Income Support Urgent Cases payments and interim payments of Income Support.
Before the SSAC considers the draft regulations, it would like to hear from organisations and individuals who have views on the proposals.
Those wishing to make representations to the committee may obtain copies of an explanatory note and draft regulations from the Secretary, SSAC Room 344, New Court, 48 Carey Street, London WC2A 2LS. Representations to the committee should be sent to arrive no later than Friday, 10 November 1995.
