Grants to Counties other than London

89General Exchequer Grants to counties

Out of the county apportionment of every county other than the county of London there shall be set aside such amount as will be sufficient to pay to the councils of districts situate wholly or partly within the county the sums hereinafter directed to be so set aside; the residue of the county apportionment after such sums as aforesaid have been so set aside, shall be paid to the council of the county and shall be called the " General Exchequer Grant " of that council :

Provided that, if in the case of any county the county apportionment is less than the amount to be so set aside, the deficiency shall be paid out of moneys provided by Parliament, and the sums so paid shall be treated as part of the county apportionment.

90Additional Exchequer Grants to counties

(1)As respects the first fixed grant period, if in the case of any county the county apportionment falls short of an amount arrived at by adding to the standard sum a sum equivalent to one shilling per head of the estimated population of the county for the standard year, there shall in respect of each year of that fixed grant period be paid out of moneys provided by Parliament to the council of the county a sum equal to the deficiency.

(2)As respects each subsequent fixed grant period, if in the case of any county the county apportionment falls short of the standard sum increased by the greater of the two following sums, that is to say—

(a)a sum equivalent to one shilling per head of the estimated population of the county for the appropriate year;

(b)a sum equivalent to one-third of the excess of the county apportionment for the period in question over what would have been the county apportionment for the period in question had the General Exchequer Contribution for that period been the same as the General Exchequer Contribution for the first fixed grant period;

there shall in respect of each year of the fixed grant period in question be paid out of moneys provided by Parliament to the council of the county a sum equal to the deficiency.

(3)For the purposes of this section, the standard sum as respects any county shall be the amount of the loss on account of rates and grants of that county, so, however, that—

(a)if, for the fixed grant period in question the General Exchequer Contribution is less than the General Exchequer Contribution for the first fixed grant period, the standard sum shall be the said amount reduced proportionately to such diminution in the General Exchequer Contribution;

(b)if for the fixed grant period in question the weighted population of the county is less than the weighted population of the county for the first fixed grant period adjusted as regards unemployment, the standard sum shall be the said amount reduced (or if a reduction therein has been made under paragraph (a) of this subsection, that reduced amount further reduced) proportionately to such diminution in weighted population.

(4)In this section the expression " adjusted as regards unemployment" means calculated as if the appropriate' multiple mentioned in Rule 2 of Part III of the Fourth Schedule to this Act had been the multiple appropriate to the fixed grant period in question, and not the multiple appropriate to the first fixed grant period.

(5)The sum payable out of moneys provided by Parliament to the council of a county under this section in respect of any year shall be called the "Additional Exchequer Grant " of that council.
