(b)the administrative scheme may make provision for the reference or delegation by the London County Council to any committee of that council (including the public assistance committee) of any of the functions transferred to the council under this Part of this Act except the power of raising a rate or borrowing money:

(c)the administrative scheme may make provision for the appointment—

(i)of sub-committees of the public assistance committee (in this section referred to as " local committees ") consisting wholly or partly of members of that committee; and

(ii)of sub-committees of local committees, consisting wholly or partly of members of the local committees;

for the functions of such local committees and for the discharge by the sub-committees thereof of any of the functions which, under the foregoing provisions of this Part of this Act, are to be discharged by guardians committees or subcommittees thereof:

(d)the London County Council may make arrangements with the common council of the City of London, or the council of any metropolitan borough, for the provision by the common council or metropolitan borough council under the Maternity and Child Welfare Act, 1918, of any assistance which could be provided either by way of poor relief or by virtue of that Act, and the provisions of this Part of this Act relating to arrangements between a county council and the council of a district for the provision of assistance under the Maternity and Child Welfare Act, 1918, shall apply accordingly :

(e)the functions of the Metropolitan Asylum Board under the Public Health (London) Act, 1891, and section forty-two of the Divided Parishes and Poor Law Amendment Act, 1876, shall, as from the appointed day, be transferred to the London County Council:

(f)as from the appointed day, any expenses of sanitary authorities in the county of London which under the Public Health (London) Act, 1891, are repayable out of the metropolitan common poor fund, shall be repaid by the London County Council, and any payments which under the Valuation (Metropolis) Act, 1869, are to be made from or to that fund shall be made from or to the county fund:

(g)the functions of boards of guardians in the county of London in respect of vaccination, and the officers employed in connection with those functions, shall as from the appointed day be transferred to the common council of the City of London and to the councils of the several metropolitan boroughs instead of to the London County Council, and the appropriate provisions of this Act with respect to the transfer of property and liabilities and the transfer, superannuation and compensation of officers shall apply subject to the necessary adaptations:

(h)as from the appointed day, the City of London (including the Inner Temple and the Middle Temple) and every metropolitan borough shall be an assessment area, and there shall be for every such area an assessment committee who shall have as regards valuation fists for each parish within their area the same functions as assessment committees had immediately before the appointed day with regard to valuation lists for the parishes in their areas. The assessment committee shall as from the appointed day consist of such number of persons appointed, in the case of the City of London by the common council, and in the case of a metropolitan borough by the council of the borough, being members of the council, as the council may think fit, together with, in the case of the assessment committee for a metropolitan borough, one person appointed by the London County Council; and the members of the said committees shall be appointed in every year in the month of November or December, and shall hold office until their successors are appointed, so, however, that the first such committee may be appointed at any time before the appointed day, but shall not continue in office after the month of December next following :

Provided that—

(i)no person who is a member of any committee to which the duties of a rating authority with respect to the preparation of a valuation list are referred or delegated shall be qualified for appointment as a member of the assessment committee;

(ii)the London County Council may appoint a person to act for all purposes as a member of the assessment committee in substitution for the person appointed by them as aforesaid at any time when that person is unable to act;

(iii)neither the person nor the substitute to be appointed as aforesaid by the London County Council shall be an officer of that council. The quorum of the assessment committee shall be such number as the committee may determine, not being less than three. No member of the assessment committee or person acting as such a member shall receive any remuneration or other like payment in respect of his services as such. The town clerk, or in the City of London such other officer as the council may designate or appoint, shall be the clerk to the assessment committee:

(i)the functions transferred to the London County Council under this Part of this Act shall be exercisable throughout the county of London.
