(4)After subsection (3) (requirement to use previous values of T and TP) there shall be inserted—

(3A)In making substitute calculations under section 88(2) or 89(3) of the Greater London Authority Act 1999, the authority must use any amount determined in the previous calculations for item P1 or T in section 88(2) of that Act or for item P2 or item TP2 in section 89(4) of that Act.

as increased by the relevant portion of any new additional grant.

(4B)For the purposes of subsection (4A) above, “the relevant portion of any new additional grant” means the amount of any additional grant payable to the authority for the year which was not taken into account by the authority in making the previous calculations, but—

as the Secretary of State may determine for the purposes of paragraph (a) or (b) of that subsection and any particular financial year or years.

(6)After subsection (5) (cases where previous calculations quashed for non-compliance with sections 43 to 48) there shall be inserted—

(6)Subsections (2) and (3A) above shall not apply if the previous calculations have been quashed because of a failure to comply with the appropriate Greater London provisions in making the calculations.
