(a)shall be of such amounts; and

(b)shall fall due on such date or dates;

as may be determined by the Secretary of State.

(3)The total amount so recoverable shall be such as may be determined (and from time to time revised) in accordance with regulations made by the Secretary of State under this section (referred to in this section as “recovery regulations”).

(4)Subject to any provision made by such regulations by virtue of subsection (6) below, recovery regulations shall provide for the total amount so recoverable to be determined by reference to any amount determined under grant regulations as the amount of the recurrent grant (as from time to time revised) payable in respect of the school for the financial year in question.

(5)The amount of any sum so recoverable shall be determined—

(a)where before the determination of the amount of that sum any amount has been determined under recovery regulations as the total amount recoverable by virtue of subsection (1) above in respect of the school and financial year in question, by reference to any amount so determined as the total amount so recoverable; and

(b)in any other case, by reference to any amount estimated by the Secretary of State as the amount which will initially be so determined as the total amount so recoverable;

which the Secretary of State considers it appropriate to adopt for the time being as a basis for determining the amounts of sums so recoverable.

(8)The Secretary of State may recover sums due to him under this section from the authority in either or both of the following ways—

(a)by requiring the authority to pay the whole or any part of any such sum at such time or times as he thinks fit;
