13Contribution from London ratepayers to expenditure on grants under section 12

(1)The Secretary of State may in respect of any year make a levy on the rating authorities for all rating areas comprised in Greater London for the purpose of recovering a contribution from the ratepayers of Greater London towards his estimated expenditure in that year on grants under section 12 of this Act.

(2)Subject to the following provisions of this section, for the purpose of raising the levy under this section in respect of any year the Secretary of State may issue a demand for payments in respect of that year to the rating authorities mentioned in subsection (1) above.

(3)Any such demand—

(a)shall require each of those rating authorities to levy, as part, or as an additional item, of the rate, a rate of the required amount in the pound ; and

(b)shall state the date or dates on or before which payments are required to be made on account of the rate levied in pursuance of the demand, and the amount of each such payment.

(4)The reference in subsection (3)(a) above to the required amount in the pound is a reference to such amount in the pound as may be specified by an order made by the Secretary of State in respect of the year to which the demand relates.

(5)The amount in the pound to be specified in an order made by the Secretary of State under subsection (4) above in respect of any year shall be such as appears to the Secretary of State to be sufficient, if a rate of that amount in the pound is levied by each rating authority mentioned in subsection (1) above in pursuance of a demand issued under subsection (2) above in respect of that year, to raise the appropriate contribution for that year from the ratepayers of Greater London.

(6)For any year, that contribution is such a proportion, not exceeding a maximum of two-thirds, of the Secretary of State's estimated expenditure in that year on grants under section 12 of this Act, as it appears to the Secretary of State appropriate to recover from the ratepayers of Greater London.

(7)An order under subsection (4) above shall set out the factors taken into account and the method of calculation employed in determining the amount in the pound specified in the order.

(8)The Secretary of State may by order substitute for the maximum proportion specified in subsection (6) above (whether as originally enacted or as modified by a previous order under this subsection) such maximum proportion as he thinks fit.

(9)No order may be made under this section unless a draft of the order has been laid before, and approved by a resolution of, the Commons House of Parliament.

(10)Any sums received by the Secretary of State in pursuance of a demand issued under subsection (2) above shall be paid into the Consolidated Fund.
