§ Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is the significance of the difference between the definition of "adopter" in the Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Adoption Pay (General) Regulations 2002 (S.I. 2002/2822) and that in the Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Adoption Pay (Administration) Regulations 2002 (S.I. 2002/2820). [HL276I]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Trade and Industry (Lord Sainsbury of Turville):
There is no significance in the difference between the definitions in the two regulations. The wording is slightly different but this had no effect in practice.
