When proposals for regulations are formally referred to the SSAC by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions or the Northern Ireland Department responsible for social security, the Committee generally initiates public consultation with interested bodies and individuals. This process is described in more detail in About SSAC.
The consultation papers listed below provide both the Department for Work and Pensions' explanatory memorandum, which describes the proposals on which we are consulting, the draft regulations and a copy of our press notice announcing the consultation exercise.
Or, you can contact us to obtain hard copies.
