Payments towards salaries of Medical, Officers of Health, die

3Every county council and county borough council shall continue to make the like payments as they were, before the appointed day, required to make under paragraph (c) of subsection (2) of section twenty-four of the Local Government Act, 1888; that is to say, they shall pay to every local authority for any area wholly or partly in the county or county borough by whom a medical officer of health or sanitary inspector is paid one-half of the salary of that officer, where his qualification, appointment, salary, and tenure of office are in accordance with the regulations made by order under the Public Health Act, 1875, or the Public Health (London) Act, 1891; but if the Minister certifies to the council that any such medical officer has failed to send to the Minister such report and returns as are for the time being required by the regulations respecting his duties made by order of the Minister under either such Act as aforesaid, or if the local authority have failed to comply with the provisions of the Public Health (Officers) Act, 1921, the said sum equal to one half of the salary shall be forfeited to the Crown and shall be paid to the Exchequer and not to the said local authority :

Provided that, where the area of any such local authority is not wholly comprised in one county or county borough, a certified proportionate part only of the sum otherwise payable shall be paid by the council of each such county or county borough.
