    The Secretary of State for Social Security, with the consent of the Treasury, in exercise of the powers conferred by paragraph 2 of Schedule 8 to the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992[1] and paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 to the Social Security Administration Act 1992[2] and of all other powers enabling him in that behalf, hereby makes the following Scheme:
    Citation, commencement and interpretation
        1.—(1)  This Scheme may be cited as the Workmen's Compensation (Supplementation) (Amendment) Scheme 1994 and shall come into force on 13th April 1994.

        (2)  In this Scheme—
      "the operative date" means 13th April 1994;

      "the principal Scheme" means the Workmen's Compensation (Supplementation) Scheme 1982[3]; and

      "lesser incapacity allowance" means the allowance payable in accordance with article 5 of the principal Scheme.

    Amendment of article 5 of the principal Scheme
        2.    Paragraph (2) of article 5 of the principal Scheme shall be amended by substituting for the words "14th April 1993" the words "13th April 1994".
    Substitution of Schedule 1 to the principal Scheme
        3.    For Schedule 1 to the principal Scheme (table of rates of lesser incapacity allowance for beneficiaries to whom article 5(2) applies and table of loss of earnings and corresponding rate of lesser incapacity allowance) there shall be substituted the Schedule set out in the Schedule to this Scheme.
    Transitional provision relating to amount of allowance payable
        4.—(1)  Paragraph (2) of this article shall apply to a beneficiary who was, before the operative date, in receipt of a lesser incapacity allowance but in respect of whom the final calculation of earnings required by article 7(2) of the principal Scheme had not been made by that date.

        (2)  In such a case as is referred to in paragraph (1) above the beneficiary shall be treated as entitled, from the operative date, to an allowance at the rate to which he would have been entitled had the final calculation been made before the operative date.
    Transitional provision relating to claims not made before the operative date
        5.—(1)  Paragraph (2) of this article shall apply to a person whose claim for lesser incapacity allowance was not made before the operative date and who is awarded such allowance for a period after the operative date at one of the rates shown in the second column of Part II of Schedule 1 to the principal Scheme.

        (2)  Any lesser incapacity allowance which is found to be payable to a person mentioned in paragraph (1) in respect of a period before the operative date shall—
       (a) in so far as it relates to the period from 14th April 1993 to 12th April 1994 inclusive, be paid at the rate shown in the first column of Part I of Schedule 1 to the principal Scheme which corresponds to the rate awarded to him for the period after the operative date; and
       (b) in so far as it relates to a period before 14th April 1993, be paid at the rate or rates then in force which corresponds or correspond to the rate awarded to him for the period after the operative date.

    Transitional provision relating to claims made but not determined before the operative date
        6.—(1)  Paragraph (2) of this article shall apply to a person whose claim for lesser incapacity allowance was made but not determined before the operative date.

        (2)  Any lesser incapacity allowance which is found to be payable to a person mentioned in paragraph (1) in respect of a period before the operative date shall be paid at the rate or rates in force for the allowance for that period which corresponds or correspond with that person's loss of earnings.
    Transitional provision relating to review and appeal
        7.    Where a lesser incapacity allowance has been awarded to a person under the principal Scheme before the operative date and a question arises as to the weekly rate of allowance payable in consequence of this Scheme, the case shall be reviewed by the adjudication officer in the light of the amendments made by, and transitional provisions contained in, this Scheme and the allowance shall continue to be payable at the weekly rate specified in the award until the question has been determined in accordance with the provisions of the principal Scheme.
