EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

The Council Tax (Additional Provisions for Discount Disregards) Regulations 1992 provide for the conditions to be fulfilled where a care worker is to be disregarded for the purposes of a discount, which has the effect of reducing the amount of council tax payable in respect of a dwelling in which the care worker is resident. One of those conditions is that the care worker is paid no more than a specified weekly amount. Regulation 2 of these Regulations raises this amount from £36 to £44.

A regulatory appraisal has been carried out in connection with these Regulations and is available from the Local Government Finance Division, Department for Local Government and Culture, National Assembly for Wales, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NQ (telephone 02920825111).
