(1)For the purposes of executing any overspill agreement or town development scheme the receiving authority or development corporation may—
(a)take, whether within or outside their district, any action which, apart from this section, they could lawfully take if it were for the benefit of their district, notwithstanding that it is not, or may not be, for the benefit thereof, and
(b)appoint the exporting authority to act as their agents for the purpose of taking any action relating to the functions of the receiving authority or corporation under the agreement or scheme;
and any exporting authority appointed as mentioned in paragraph (b) of this section may themselves incur expenditure in taking any action to which the appointment relates and shall defray any expenditure so incurred as if it were incurred within and for the benefit of their own district.
(2)In relation to any town development scheme the foregoing subsection shall apply to any public authority (other than the receiving authority) who have a duty under the scheme to provide any water supply or sewerage service as it applies to the receiving authority, with, in the case of a local water authority, the substitution, for the reference to the district of the receiving authority, of a reference to the area within the limits of supply of the local water authority.
(3)In this section any reference to action relating to the functions of the receiving authority or development corporation under any overspill agreement or town development scheme includes a reference to any survey or preparatory work required to determine the practicability of any proposed overspill agreement or town development scheme.
