    Hi,

    I am currently studying LLB law and have a question I hope someone can help me with.

    The claimant claimed jobseeker's allowance under the Jobseekers Act 1995. When the court construe the relevant sections of the Act, the judge looked into the subordinate regulations of the Act (Jobseekers Regulation 1996).

    My question is whether the 1996 regulation (statutory instrument) should be viewed as a functional part of the parent Act (the 1995 Act) and therefore an intrinsic aid in construction of the Act, or it should be viewed separately and therefore an extrinsic aid the judge had viewed in construction of the 1995 Act?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, a regulation act can be used as an extrinsic aid to interpreting an act, as long as the act that is being interpreted gives reference to the regulation act, or visa versa.
