Full text
16.1. Any allowance paid where it was not due may be recovered as a debt due to the public treasury.
The allowance may also be recovered by way of a deduction from future allowances payable to the person who received it; however, the deduction shall not exceed the percentage prescribed by regulation unless the debtor consents thereto.
The Board may grant the release of a debt, up to the amount prescribed by regulation, in respect of any allowance paid where it was not due if the Board is of the opinion that it cannot be recovered in light of the circumstances.
