10For the first year succeeding that in which the amalgamation took place (in paragraph 14 below referred to for the purposes of this paragraph as “the valuation year”) the cumulo rateable value pertaining to the amalgamated water undertaking shall be determined under paragraph 5 above on the basis of an aggregation of the various figures for the separate undertakings comprising the amalgamated undertaking certified to the Assessor under paragraph 4 above in respect of the year prior to that in which the amalgamation took place (in paragraph 14 below referred to for the purposes of this paragraph as “the base year”).S
