Local Government Finance Act 2012

Part 2: Determination of the central and local share

71.This places a requirement on the Secretary of State for each year to determine the central and local share percentages for each billing authority. Paragraph 5 requires this determination to be set out in a local government finance report, which must be laid before the House of Commons, and sent to each relevant authority as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter. This requirement in respect of the local government finance report replaces the current provisions as to a local government finance report in section 78A of and Schedule 8 to the LGFA 1988, but makes similar provision in relation to the preparation and approval of the local government finance report.
