S 36 repealed by No 105 of 2000, s 3 and Sch 1 item 8, effective 6 July 2000. S 36 formerly read:
PENALTY FOR MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS
You are liable to a penalty if:
you make a false statement to a person who is exercising powers, or performing functions, under or in connection with this Act or an entitlement Act (whether or not you know that the statement is a false statement); and
the amount of a grant or benefit that would have been payable to you in respect of a claim period if the statement was not false exceeds the amount of the grant or benefit properly payable to you in respect of that claim period.
The amount of the penalty is double the excess.
