Not sure if this is the correct section?

I am personally aware via support worker friends in my area that 'old style' JSA claimants are also required via their JSACC to seek work 48hrs per week.  Mad

Expected hours
88.—(1) The “expected number of hours per week” in relation to a claimant for the purposes of determining their individual threshold in regulation 90 or for the purposes of regulation 95 or 97 is 35 unless some lesser number of hours applies under paragraph (2).
(2) The lesser number of hours is—
(a)where—
(i)the claimant is a relevant carer, a responsible carer or a responsible foster parent, and
(ii)the Secretary of State is satisfied that the claimant has reasonable prospects of obtaining paid work,the number of hours that the Secretary of State considers is compatible with those caring responsibilities;
(b)where the claimant is a responsible carer for a child under the age of 13, the number of hours that the Secretary of State considers is compatible with the child’s normal school hours (including the normal time it takes the child to travel to and from school); or
(c)where the claimant has a physical or mental impairment, the number of hours that the Secretary of State considers is reasonable in light of the impairment.
