Local Government (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1963

Schedule 1Recalculation of certain Apportionments for 1961-62

1Where, in pursuance of section 1 of the Local Government (Financial Provisions, etc.) (Scotland) Act 1962, the calculation of—

(a)the apportionment and allocation among local authorities of the expenditure of a county council in respect of the year 1961-62, or

(b)the apportionment among landward areas and burghs of the. general grant apportioned to a county under paragraph 1 of Schedule 2 to the Act of 1958 for the year 1961-62,

has been revised according to a formula based in whole or in part on estimates of the rateable valuation of the areas concerned made under subsection (1) of the said section 1, and the Secretary of State is satisfied that the revised calculation would have produced a substantially different result if for the said estimates there had been substituted the actual rateable valuations of the areas concerned for the year 1961-62, he may direct that the calculation shall be further revised with that substitution.

2In the foregoing paragraph the expression "actual rateable valuation " in relation to any area means the rateable valuation (as denned for the purposes of the Act of 1956) made up from the valuation roll for the year 1961-62 after adjustment as a result of any relevant appeals, including appeals by way of stated case to the Lands Valuation Appeal Court.

3Where any apportionment and allocation of expenditure, or any apportionment of general grant, in respect of the year 1961-62, as further revised in pursuance of a direction made under this Schedule, differs from any corresponding apportionment and allocation, or, as the case may be, apportionment, in respect of that year which has previously taken effect, the appropriate adjustment shall be made in the corresponding apportionment and allocation, or apportionment, for the year 1963-64:

Provided that, where an appeal against an entry in the valuation roll for the year 1961-62 is still pending at the commencement of the year 1963-64, the said adjustment shall be made in the corresponding apportionment and allocation, or apportionment, for the year 1964-65.
