This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Part IExisting Rate Support Grants

1The provisions of sections 1 to 5 of the Local Government Act 1966 (in this Part of this Schedule referred to as "the 1966 Act") shall not have effect with respect to any year beginning on or after 1st April 1974 but, subject to paragraph 2 below, nothing in this Act shall affect the continued operation of those provisions on or after that date in relation to any year ending before that date.

2No order shall be made after 31st March 1974 under section 3 of the 1966 Act (power of Secretary of State to vary rate support grant orders).

3Without prejudice to his powers under section 4 of this Act, if at any time during the year 1974-75 it appears to the Secretary of State that, but for the provisions of paragraph 2 above, he would have made an, order under section 3 of the 1966 Act increasing the amount fixed by the rate support grant order for the year 1973-74 as the aggregate amount of the rate support grants for that year, he may by an order made in lice manner and subject to the like provisions as a rate support grant order—

(a)increase the amount fixed by the rate support grant order for the year 1974-75 as the estimated aggregate amount of the rate support grants for that year by an amount equal to the increase for which he would have made provision in the order under section 3 of the 1966 Act; and

(b)make such increases in all or any of the elements of rate support grants for that year as appear to him to be appropriate in consequence of the increase in the estimated aggregate amount of those grants made by virtue of sub-paragraph (a) above.

4Without prejudice to the generality of the power to make regulations under section 5 of the 1966 Act (for carrying into effect the provisions of sections 1 to 4 of, and Schedule 1 to, that Act) regulations under that section may make—

(a)such provision as the Secretary of State considers appropriate,

having regard to paragraphs 1 and 2 above, to secure that any calculations or estimates for the time being treated by virtue of any such regulations as provisional are treated on and after 1st April 1974 as conclusive ; and

(b)such other incidental or consequential provisions, including provisions amending Part I of Schedule 1 to the 1966 Act, as the Secretary of State considers appropriate for, or in connection with, carrying the provisions of this Part of this Schedule into effect.

5In this Part of this Schedule the expressions "rate support grants " and " rate support grant order " have, in relation to any year ending before 1st April 1974, the same meanings as in the 1966 Act.
