Abstract/Citation: Amends the Jobseeker's Allowance Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/207) by ensuring that where a linked period commenced before 6 October 1997, any day of unemployment which forms part of a period of interruption of employment shall be treated as a jobseeking period if that period ends within 8 weeks of the commencement of the linked period. Also amends the Jobseeker's Allowance (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/2567) so as to provide that in the case of persons to whom unemployment benefit was payable on 6 or 7 April 1996 and where the period of interruption of employment that was current on that date was also current on the relevant day, a section of the Jobseeker's Act 1995 shall only have effect as if the reference to 182 days were replaced by a reference to 312 days, up until the day before the Regulations come into force.
