EXPLANATORY NOTE

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

Regulations 2 and 4 amend regulation 3(3) of, and revoke the Schedule to, the Asylum Support Regulations 2000 (“the 2000 Regulations”) so that there is no longer a requirement that the application form issued by the Secretary of State is the form shown in the Schedule.

Regulation 3 amends regulation 10(2) of the 2000 Regulations by increasing the cash amounts payable, as a general rule, in respect of a person's essential living needs. These changes take effect from 9th April 2007 and on that date the Asylum Support (Amendment) Regulations 2006, which set out the amounts previously payable, are revoked.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.
