FOURTH SCHEDULERules for calculations in respect of General Exchequer Grants

Part I

Rules for determining Losses on account of Rates

1There shall be estimated and certified as respects each rating area—

(a)the expenditure in respect of the standard year which would have fallen to be borne by rates levied in that area on the following assumptions :—

(i)that, elsewhere than in the County of London, section nine of the Rating and Valuation Act, 1925, and not paragraph 10 of the Seventh Schedule to that Act, had been in operation with respect to precepts issued by county councils; and

(ii)that the expenditure on the transferred services had been expenditure by a county council or a county borough council, and, in the case of a county, had been expenditure for general county purposes; and

(iii)that, in the case of the County of London, the London (Equalisation of Rates) Act, 1894, had not been in force in the standard year;

(b)the unreduced rateable value of the area ;

(c)the reduced rateable value of the area ;

(d)the difference between the unreduced rateable value and the reduced rateable value of the area; which difference increased by a percentage ascertained in the prescribed manner in respect of losses in the collection of rates is hereinafter referred to as " the loss of rateable value."

2In estimating and certifying the expenditure on the transferred services by a county or county borough council for the purposes of the foregoing rule in any case where the area of a highway authority or poor law authority is not wholly comprised in one county or county borough, the expenditure of the authority shall be apportioned between the several counties and county boroughs into which the area extends, and the amount apportioned to any such county or county borough shall be deemed to be expenditure by the council of that county or county borough on the transferred services.

3The loss on account of rates of a rating area shall be a sum bearing the same proportion to expenditure which would have fallen to be borne by rates as aforesaid as the loss of rateable value of the area bears to the unreduced rateable value thereof, and where a rating area comprises any separately rated area, the loss on account of rates in respect of the expenditure in regard to which the area is separately rated shall be separately determined in accordance with the rules contained in this Part of this Schedule.

4The loss on account of rates of a county shall be the aggregate of the losses on account of rates of the several separate rating areas within the county, and where a rating area is partly in one and partly in another county, the part in each county shall be treated as if it were a separate rating area.

5For the purpose of determining the loss on account of a special rate, the foregoing rules shall have effect as if—

(a)the expression " rates " meant such special rate:

(b)the expression " separately rated area " meant the area in which such special rate is levied;

(c)the reduced and unreduced rateable value of any hereditament to which subsection (2) of section three of the Bating and Valuation Act, 1925, applies, were one-fourth part thereof;

and the loss on account of the special rates of a district shall be the aggregate of the losses on account of special rates of the areas in which special rates are levied within the district.

6For the purpose of determining the loss on account of a parish rate, the foregoing rules shall have effect as if the expression " rates " meant such parish rate, and the expression " separately rated area " meant the parish or the part of a parish in which such parish rate is levied; and the loss on account of parish rates of a district shall be the aggregate of the losses on account of parish rates of the parishes or parts of parishes in which parish rates are levied within the district.

7The loss on account of rates of the common council of the City of London and of a metropolitan borough council shall be determined in accordance with the foregoing rules, subject to the following modifications :—

(a)the expenditure to be estimated and certified shall be the expenditure of the council in respect of the standard year falling to be borne by rates;

(b)the loss of the council on account of rates shall be the aggregate of the losses on account of rates levied in respect of the expenditure of the council in the several separately rated areas within the city or metropolitan borough.

Part II

Rules for Determining Losses on Account of Chants

1There shall be estimated and certified the amounts paid or payable in respect of the standard year to spending authorities within each county and county borough out of the discontinued grants, after deducting therefrom a sum equal to such part of the amounts paid or payable in respect of the standard year out of the Local Taxation Account or out of the proceeds of duties on local taxation licences levied and retained by the council of the county or county borough as was in pursuance of any statutory requirement applicable for the purposes of higher education or police services within the county or county borough :

Provided that—

(a)for the purposes of this rule, no part of the annual or additional annual grant made under the Agricultural Bates Acts, 1896 and 1923, shall be deemed to have been so applicable as aforesaid; and

(b)any financial adjustment between spending authorities in force with respect to the standard year, which affected the allocation of the amounts paid or payable to such authorities out of the discontinued grants, shall be taken into account in estimating the said amounts.

2The amounts aforesaid shall be estimated and certified as if road grants had been made in respect of the standard year at the rates at which they were payable immediately before the appointed day.

3In estimating and certifying the amounts aforesaid, in any case where the area for which a spending authority acts is not wholly comprised in one county or county borough, the amount paid or payable to the spending authority out of the discontinued grants shall be apportioned between the several counties and county boroughs into which the area extends, and the amount apportioned to any county or county borough shall be deemed to be an amount paid or payable to a spending authority within that county or county borough.

4The loss on account of grants of a spending authority shall be the amounts so estimated and certified as respects that authority, and the loss on account of grants of a county or county borough shall be the aggregate of the losses on account of grants of the spending authorities within the county or county borough.

5For the purpose of the rules contained in this Part of this Schedule—

(a)the expression spending authorities shall include voluntary associations and joint authorities (including the receiver for the metropolitan police district) to which grants were paid or payable in respect of the standard year; and

(b)any grants paid or payable in respect of the standard year to the King Edward the Seventh Welsh National Memorial Association for the purposes of sanatoria or other institutions for the treatment of tuberculosis shall be treated as if they had been included among the amounts paid or payable out of the discontinued grants; and

(c)the area for which a voluntary association acts shall be determined by the Minister.

6As respects the County of London—

(a)the Minister may by order determine the extent to which grants to voluntary associations in respect of maternity and child welfare services carried on by them are to be apportioned as if they had been grants to the London County Council, on the one hand, and to the common council and the metropolitan borough councils on the other hand;

(b)the loss on account of grants of the common council or of a metropolitan borough council shall be the loss on account of grants of the council as a spending authority, together with the loss of such part, if any, of the grants to voluntary associations as may be apportioned to the council under the last foregoing paragraph and the appropriate proportion of the loss on account of grants of the receiver for the metropolitan police district.

Part III

Bides for determining Weighted Population

1The estimated population of the county or county borough in the appropriate year shall be increased—

(i)if the estimated number of children under five years of age per thousand of the estimated population exceeds fifty, by the percentage represented by the proportion which that excess bears to fifty;

(ii)if, according to the valuation lists in force on the appropriate date, the rateable value per head of the estimated population of the county or county borough is less than ten pounds, by the percentage represented by the proportion which the deficiency bears to ten pounds.

2There shall be estimated and certified the average numbers during the three calendar years immediately preceding the beginning of each fixed grant period of unemployed insured men and of unemployed insured women resident in each county and county borough, and there shall be ascertained the percentage represented by the proportion which the number of unemployed insured men increased by ten per cent. of the number of unemployed insured women bears to the average estimated population of the county or county borough for those three years, and if as respects any county or county borough that percentage exceeds one-and-a-half, the estimated population of the county or county borough in the appropriate year as increased in accordance with Role 1 contained in this Part of this Schedule shall be further increased by a percentage equal to the amount of such excess multiplied by the appropriate multiple.

3There shall be ascertained and certified the number of miles of road in every county other than the county of London, and the estimated population of every such county as increased in accordance with Rule 1 contained in this Part of this Schedule shall be further increased—

(a)in the case of a county in which the estimated population per mile of roads is in the appropriate year less than one hundred, by the percentage represented by the proportion which the difference between two hundred and the estimated population per mile of roads bears to two hundred; and

(b)in the case of a county in which the estimated population per mile of roads is in the appropriate year one hundred or more, by the percentage represented by the proportion which fifty bears to the estimated population per mile of roads.

4The estimated population of the county or county borough as increased in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing rules contained in this Part of this Schedule shall be the weighted population of the county or county borough.

5For the purposes of this Part of this Schedule:—

  • " The appropriate date " shall, as respects the first fixed grant period, be the first day of October nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, and as respects every other fixed grant period, the first, or in London the sixth, day of April in the last year of the preceding fixed grant period:

  • " The appropriate multiple " shall, as respects the first and second fixed grant periods, be ten, and as respects any subsequent fixed grant period be a number ascertained in the following manner:— (i) the ratio which the total amount of the General Exchequer Contribution in the fixed grant period in question bears to the part thereof distributed in that fixed grant period under paragraph (b) of subsection (1) of section eighty-eight of this Act shall be ascertained :

    (i)

    the ratio which the total amount of the General Exchequer Contribution in the first fixed grant period bears to the part thereof distributed in that fixed grant period under the said paragraph shall be ascertained :

    (ii)

    the required number shall be such number as bears to ten the same proportion as the ratio ascertained under paragraph (i) of this rule bears to the ratio ascertained under paragraph (ii) thereof.

Part IV

Rules for calculating sums to be allocated to Districts on the basis of Population

1The number of pence produced by dividing one half of the total amount of the county apportionments (exclusive of any sums paid out of moneys provided by Parliament to make good a deficiency in any such apportionment) to counties other than London by the aggregate of the estimated populations of those counties in the appropriate year shall be ascertained to the nearest penny.

2The amount to be allocated to an urban district shall be the number of pence ascertained under Rule 1 contained in this Part of this Schedule multiplied by the estimated population of the district in the appropriate year.

3The amount to be allocated to a rural district shall be one-fifth of the number of pence ascertained under Rule 1 contained in this Part of this Schedule multiplied by the estimated population of the district in the appropriate year.

FIFTH SCHEDULERules for ascertaining Gains and Losses of Areas

1There shall be estimated and certified as respects each separately rated area the rate in the pound required to raise an amount certified as being the amount of the expenditure for the standard year falling to be borne by rates (other than special and parish rates) in that area on the assumptions that the rateable values of all hereditaments were the unreduced rateable values thereof, and that the expenditure on the transferred services was incurred by the various spending authorities as existing before the transfer of those services.

2There shall be estimated and certified the rate in the pound which would be required to raise an amount certified as being the amount of such part of the expenditure for the standard year as would have fallen to be borne by rates (other than special and parish rates) in that area on the following assumptions—

(a)that the rateable values of all hereditaments were the reduced rateable values thereof; and

(b)that the expenditure on the transferred services was expenditure by the county council or the county borough council and in the case of a county was expenditure for general county purposes; and

(c)that the standard year was a year falling within the first fixed grant period and that the provisions of Part VI. of this Act, other than sections ninety-four, ninety-six, ninety-seven and one hundred had been in operation.

3In estimating and certifying the expenditure on the transferred services by a county council or county borough council in any case where the area for which a highway authority or poor law authority acts is not wholly comprised in one county or county borough, the expenditure of the authority shall be apportioned between the several counties and county boroughs into which the area extends, and the amount so apportioned to any such county or county borough shall be deemed to be expenditure by the council of that county or county borough on the transferred services.

4The difference resulting from subtracting the rate under Rule 2 contained in this Schedule from the rate under Rule 1 contained therein shall be ascertained.

5If as respects any area the difference is a plus quantity, the estimated proceeds of a rate equivalent to the difference levied on the reduced rateable value of the area shall be deemed to be the gain of the area.

6If the difference is a minus quantity, the estimated proceeds of a rate equivalent to the difference levied on the reduced rateable value of the area shall be deemed to be the loss of the area.

7For the purposes of these Rules, it shall be assumed that elsewhere than in the County of London section nine of the Rating and Valuation Act, 1925, and not paragraph 10 of the Seventh Schedule to that Act, was in operation with respect to precepts issued by county councils.

SIXTH SCHEDULEAdjustments and Apportionments of Poor Law Property and Liabilities

Adjustment in respect of Institutional Property and Liabilities

1Except where the councils of the counties and county boroughs into which a poor law area extends agree that no adjustment in respect of institutional property and liabilities is necessary, such adjustment shall, be made between the councils as they may agree or in default of agreement as the Minister may by order determine :

Provided that for the purposes of any agreement or order made under this paragraph the certificate of an officer of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue of the value of any institutional property shall be conclusive, and the costs of the valuation upon a scale to be prescribed by the Treasury shall be payable to the Commissioners by the councils concerned and shall be treated as an institutional liability attaching to the property valued.

Apportionment of or Adjustment in respect of Non-Institutional Property and Liabilities

2(1)As soon as practicable after the appointed day the prescribed officer shall prepare in respect of each poor law area which was not wholly comprised within one county or county borough, and the district auditor for the audit district in which the poor law area was comprised shall certify to the councils of the counties or county boroughs into which the area extended, statement showing the value as at the appointed day of the non-institutional property and liabilities of the poor law authority, other than any right of recovery from any person of payments made or expenses incurred by the poor law authority by way of poor relief.

(2)The certificate of the district auditor shall be final and conclusive:

Provided that any such auditor may, if he thinks fit, give an interim or provisional certificate and may amend any final certificate given by him so far as appears to him necessary for the purpose of correcting any errors.

3The property and liabilities of the poor law authority included in the said statement shall be apportioned on the basis of their values as at the appointed day between the several counties and county boroughs concerned in proportion to the reduced rateable values of the parts of the poor law area comprised in the several counties or county boroughs, or an adjustment in respect thereof on the like basis shall be made.

General

4(1)Any sum required to be paid from one council to another for the purpose of effecting an adjustment under this Schedule may be paid either by way of annual payments or by way of a single payment.

(2)Any capital money paid to a council by way of apportionment or adjustment shall be treated as capital, and applied, with the sanction of the Minister, either in the repayment of debt or for any other purpose for which capital money may be applied, and any other money so paid shall be credited to the county fund or general rate fund of the borough.

5For the purpose of this Schedule—

(a)" the prescribed officer " in relation to any poor law authority means the person who was immediately before the appointed day clerk to the authority or such other officer as may be designated for the purpose by the councils of the counties or county boroughs into which the poor law area extended, or failing agreement between those councils by the Minister; and

(b)references to a poor law area shall in relation to any time after the appointed day be construed as references to the area which immediately before the appointed day constituted the poor law area.

SEVENTH SCHEDULEProvisions as to the Sale, &o. of Parish Property

1The council, representative body or other persons in whom any parish property is vested may, with the approval of the Minister, and, where the property is held for the benefit of a rural parish, subject to the consent of the parish meeting of that parish, sell exchange let or otherwise dispose of the property :

Provided that in the case of a letting for a term not exceeding one year neither the approval of the Minister nor the consent of the parish meeting shall be necessary.

2Where parish property is sold, the proceeds of sale, after deducting reasonable expenses, shall be applied in such manner 86 may be directed by the Minister either in repayment of debt, or for any purpose to the permanent advantage of the parish which may be approved by the Minister.

3Where parish property is exchanged, the land taken in exchange shall be conveyed to the council body or persons in whom the parish property was vested on the trusts on which the land given in exchange was held, and the rents and profits of the land taken in exchange shall be applied to the same purposes as those to which the rents and profits of the land given in exchange would have been applicable.

4If the parish property is let, the rents and profits thereof shall be applied for the benefit of the parish.

5The provisions of this Schedule shall extend to property in which two or more parishes are jointly interested subject to the necessary modifications, and in particular to this modification, that the proceeds of the sale of such property or the rents and profits arising from the letting thereof, shall be divisible between the parishes interested in the property in such proportions as the Minister may determine.

7This Schedule shall apply to land to which the Sale of Exhausted Parish Lands Act, 1876, applies in like manner as it applies to parish property, subject, however, to the provisions of that Act.

EIGHTH SCHEDULEProvisions as to the Determination and Payment or Compensation to Officers

1For the purpose of determining whether compensation is payable to an officer and, if so, the amount of such compensation, regard shall be had to—

(a)the conditions upon which his appointment was made;

(b)the nature of his office or employment;

(c)the duration of his service;

(d)any additional emoluments which he acquires by virtue of this Act or of anything done in pursuance or in consequence of this Act;

(e)the emoluments which he might have acquired if he had not refused to accept any office offered by any council acting under this Act; and

(f)all the other circumstances of the case,

and the compensation shall not exceed the amount which under the Acts and Rules relating to Her Majesty's Civil Service which were in operation on the thirteenth day of August, 1888, would have been payable to a person on abolition of office.

2Every person who claims to be entitled to compensation shall deliver to the council a claim on account of the emoluments for which he claims compensation, setting forth the whole amount received and expended by him or his predecessors in office, in every year during the period of five years next before the date on which the relinquishment of office or determination of appointment takes effect, or the direct pecuniary loss commences, as the case may be, distinguishing the offices in respect of which the emoluments have been received, and accompanied by a statutory declaration that the claim so delivered is a true statement according to the best of his knowledge, information and belief.

3Every claim so delivered as aforesaid shall be submitted to the council, who shall forthwith take it into consideration, and assess the just amount of compensation (if any), and shall forthwith inform the claimant of their decision, and if a council fail to inform any claimant of their decision upon his claim within six months after it has been so delivered to them, the Minister may, on application made to him in that behalf by the claimant, direct the council to do so within such time, not being lees than one month, as may be specified in the direction.

4Any claimant, if so required by any member of the council, shall attend at a meeting of the council, or of any committee appointed by the council for the purpose, and answer upon oath, which any justice present may administer, all questions asked by any member of the council or committee touching the matters set forth in his claim, and shall further produce all books, papers and documents in his possession or under his control relating to the claim.

5In computing the service of any officer for the purpose of the award of compensation, the council shall take into account all the service of that officer after he attained the age of eighteen years under any local authority:

Provided that, where the officer held two or more offices and the claim to compensation is based on a loss of one or some only of those offices, account shall not be taken under this paragraph of service in an office which the officer continues to hold unless throughout the period of his service in that office he devoted the whole of his time to the duties of offices held by him under one or more local authorities.

6If an appointment is determined by a council otherwise than at the expiration of a complete year of service of an officer, the portion then expired of that year shall be treated as a complete year where such portion exceeds six months, and shall be ignored where such portion does not exceed six months.

7The compensation payable under this Act to an officer who immediately before the appointed day held two or more offices under any one or more local authorities and who devoted the whole of his time to the duties of such offices, shall not be reduced by reason of the fact that he has devoted only part of his time to each of such offices.

8If any officer was temporarily absent from his employment during the late war whilst serving in His Majesty's forces, or the forces of the Allied or Associated Powers, either compulsorily or with the sanction or permission of the local authority, such period of temporary absence shall be reckoned as service under the authority in whose employment he was immediately before and after such temporary absence:

Provided that in the case of an officer who, after the armistice, voluntarily extended his term of service in the forces, no period of absence during any such extension shall be reckoned.

9The council to whom application for compensation is made may, in their discretion and in consideration of the fact that any officer was appointed to his office as a specially qualified person, or that the officer before his appointment had been employed as a deputy, assistant or clerk by a permanent officer for the purpose of the discharge of his official duties, add any number of years (not exceeding ten) to the number of years which such officer would otherwise be entitled to reckon for the purpose of computing the compensation to which he would be entitled under the Acts and rules relating to Her Majesty's Civil Service as applied by this Act.

ELEVENTH SCHEDULEProvisions for securing allowance of Rebates to Selected Traffics corresponding to Rate-relief of certain Companies

Part I

Provisions as to Allowance of Rebates and Reimbursement of Companies out of Rate-relief

1The companies to which this Schedule applies are:

(a)every railway company for which a schedule of standard charges has been settled under the Railways Act, 1921, or to which such a schedule is for the time being applied under section thirty-three of that Act, being a company whereof the railway is used for the conveyance of merchandise otherwise than by passenger train or carriage; and

(b)every light railway company, being a company whereof the light railway is used as a public railway for the conveyance of merchandise otherwise than by passenger train or carriage;

and such companies are in this Schedule referred to as " the companies."

2There shall be established and maintained a fund to be called the " Railway Freight Rebates Fund " (hereinafter referred to as " the fund ") which shall be administered and controlled subject to the provisions of this Schedule by the Railway Clearing House, and as from the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, each of the companies shall, by equal monthly instalments beginning on the fifteenth day of November, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, pay to the fund in respect of every year sums equal in the aggregate to the estimated rate relief of the company in that year; and as soon as the difference, if any, between the actual rate relief of a company in any year and the estimated rate relief of the company in that year has been ascertained, a sum equal to the difference shall be paid by way of adjustment out of the fund to the company or by the company to the fund, as the case may require.

3The companies shall jointly, on or before the first day of June, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, prepare and submit to the tribunal a scheme (hereinafter referred to as "the scheme") providing for the allowance by the companies of rebates from the carriage charges made by them in respect of the selected traffics, calculated in manner hereinafter appearing:

Provided that a scheme shall be deemed to have been prepared and submitted to the tribunal by the companies jointly if it has been prepared and so submitted by or on behalf of companies (being companies to which this Schedule applies) of which the aggregate total expenditure on capital account is not less than ninety per cent. of the aggregate total expenditure on capital account of all the companies.

4If the scheme so provides there shall, in every year, be set aside in the fund for the purpose of meeting any deficiency therein at the end of the year a contingency reserve of such an amount, not exceeding five per cent. of the aggregate of the sums paid and payable into the fund in respect of that year under paragraph 2 of this Part of this Schedule, as the scheme may determine.

5(1)There shall in respect of every year be paid out of the general moneys of the fund—

(a)in respect of administrative expenses, a sum equal to one-half of one per cent. of the aggregate of the estimated rate relief of the companies in respect of that year or such higher percentage thereof as the tribunal may allow on application in that behalf being made by the companies; and

(b)any interest payable on sums borrowed by the Railway Clearing House in accordance with the provisions of this Schedule; and

(c)to each of the companies a sum, determined in accordance with the provisions of the scheme, equal to the amount of the rebates allowed by the company under the scheme in respect of selected traffics delivered in that year for conveyance by railway.

(2)Out of the sum payable under sub-paragraph (1) (a) of this paragraph there shall be allocated and paid to the Railway Clearing House a sum equal to the amount of the administrative expenses incurred by them in that year in giving effect to the provisions of this Schedule and the balance shall be appropriated for the purpose of meeting the expenses of the "companies incurred in that year under or for the purposes of the scheme and shall be apportioned between the companies and paid to them in proportion to the rebates respectively allowed by them under the scheme.

6(1)The rebates provided for by the scheme shall be so calculated, as nearly as may be, that—

(a)the aggregate of the rebates in respect of the group of selected traffics contained in Part II. of this Schedule will amount annually to a sum equal to one-fifth of the annual net revenue of the fund; and

(b)the aggregate of the rebates in respect of the group of selected traffics contained in Part III. of this Schedule will amount annually to a sum equal to seven-tenths of the annual net revenue of the fund; and

(c)the aggregate of the rebates in respect of the group of selected traffics contained in Part IV. of this Schedule will amount annually to a sum equal to one-tenth of the annual net revenue of the fund.

(2)The scheme shall make provision for securing that the rebates in respect of the selected traffics contained in each of the several groups, other than rebates from tolls, will be at a uniform rate and that rebates from any toll in respect of the selected traffics shall be such percentage of the toll as may be determined by the scheme.

(3)In preparing the scheme—

(a)the receipts of the companies in respect of the several selected traffics shall, for the purpose of calculating the rebates to be allowed under the scheme, be taken to be those estimated for the year nineteen hundred and twenty-seven; and

(b)the rate-relief of the companies in the year beginning on the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, shall be taken to be of such amount as may be estimated by the companies.

(4)The scheme shall provide for the manner in which the rebates thereby provided for are to be allowed, and for the time at which payments or instalments of payments are to be made out of the fund to the companies, and contain such supplemental and consequential provisions as may be necessary for giving effect to the objects of this Schedule, and, in particular, may -make provision for enabling rebates to be allowed in respect of merchandise consigned as being intended to be so used, shipped or delivered as to constitute it a selected traffic, before it has been so used, shipped or delivered, and may contain provisions enabling the Railway Clearing House to remit any repayment due to the fund by any company in respect of any amount allowed in error by the company in excess of the rebates required by the scheme if the Railway Clearing House are satisfied that all proper precautions were taken by the company to avoid such errors and that recovery by the company of the amount allowed in excess is not reasonably practicable.

(5)The scheme shall make provision for apportioning the rebates to be allowed among the carriage charges made in the following cases:—

(a)in respect of coal delivered to a washery, coke oven, or patent fuel works, from two or more collieries where the coal is so mixed that it cannot be identified as being consigned from any one colliery and a part only of the coal, or of the resultant coke, or patent fuel is a selected traffic; and

(b)in respect of coal shipped coastwise where the coal is so mixed that it cannot be identified as being consigned from any one colliery and a part only thereof is exported;

and may provide for any certificates necessary for such apportionment being obtained by the companies and for the allowance of rebates apportioned upon the basis thereof, subject to occasional verification of the facts thereby certified.

7(1)Printed copies of the scheme as submitted to the tribunal shall be made available by the companies for purchase at such places and at such price as the tribunal may direct, and notice of the places and price at which such copies may be purchased shall be published in the London and Edinburgh Gazettes. Not less than twenty-one days after the publication of the said notices the tribunal shall consider the scheme, and, after hearing any of the companies or any representative body of traders interested which may be desirous of being heard, shall have power to make such modifications therein, if any, as the tribunal think necessary or desirable, and upon receiving a certificate, as respects England from the Minister of Health and as respects Scotland from the Secretary of State, showing the amount estimated by them respectively as being the estimated rate-relief of the companies in the year beginning on the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, shall adopt the estimates shown by the certificates and shall make such modifications in the scheme as may be thereby rendered necessary.

(2)After making such modifications in the scheme as the tribunal are hereinbefore required to make and any other modifications which they think necessary or desirable, and upon being satisfied that the scheme complies with the requirements of this Schedule, the tribunal shall, not later than the thirty-first day of July, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, approve the scheme.

8If the companies fail to submit the scheme to the tribunal before the said first day of June, or before such later date as may be allowed by the tribunal, the scheme shall be prepared and made by the tribunal before the said thirty-first day of July, and the companies shall furnish to the tribunal such information as the tribunal may require for that purpose.

9The scheme, as so approved or made by the tribunal Tinder the foregoing provisions of this Schedule, shall come into operation on the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, and shall not be revoked, and shall not be altered otherwise than as hereinafter in this Schedule provided, and any person against whom a carriage charge is made by any of the companies in respect of any of the selected traffics delivered on or after that date for conveyance by railway shall be entitled to such rebate therefrom as may be provided for by the scheme.

10(1)The tribunal shall review the operation of the scheme within two months after the end of every year and shall give not less than twenty-one days' notice of the date, time and place of the sitting at which the review will take place, and at any such review the tribunal, after hearing any of the companies or any representative body of traders interested which may be desirous of being heard, and after considering all the circumstances (including the receipts of the companies in respect of the several selected traffics delivered during the year preceding the review for conveyance by railway), shall, subject as hereinafter provided, by order make in the scheme such modifications, if any, as they think necessary or desirable, but so that the provisions thereof shall comply with the requirements of this Schedule:

Provided that—

(a)the tribunal shall not by any such order alter the rate for the time being in force of any rebate provided for by the scheme unless—

(i)a debit balance is brought forward in the fund from the last preceding year; or

(ii)the tribunal is of opinion that in the year in which the review takes place the amount of the rate-relief of the companies will be less than the amount thereof estimated for the purpose of calculating the rebates in force, and that, unless such alterations are made, there will be a deficiency in the fund in respect of that year; or

(iii)the tribunal is of opinion that, unless such alterations are made, the aggregate of the rebates in respect of any group of selected traffics will, in the year in which the review takes place, fall short of a sum equal to the appropriate proportion of the net revenue of the fund for that year by more than the fixed marginal allowance; and

(b)the rates of rebates for the time being in force in respect of any group of selected traffics shall not be reduced by any alteration made under sub-paragraph (iii) of paragraph (a) of this proviso, unless the tribunal is of opinion that, if such reductions are not made, the aggregate of the rebates in respect of that group will, in the year in which the review takes place, exceed a sum equal to the appropriate proportion of the net revenue of the fund for that year by more than the fixed marginal allowance; and

(c)no alteration shall in any case be made in the rates of rebates to be allowed in respect of the selected traffics which would cause the aggregate of the rebates to be allowed in respect of any group of selected traffics to fall short of a sum equal to the appropriate proportion of the net revenue of the fund.

(2)In this paragraph the following expressions have the meanings hereby respectively assigned to them, that is to say:—

  • "Appropriate proportion of the net revenue of the fund" means, as respects any group of selected traffics, the proportion specified in sub-paragraph (1) of paragraph 6 of this Part of this Schedule in relation to that group:

  • "Fixed marginal allowance" shall in any year be taken to be, in relation to any group of selected traffics, an amount equivalent to one per cent. of the amount estimated by the tribunal as being the aggregate of the carriage charges made and to be made by the companies in respect of the traffics contained in that group, delivered in that year for conveyance by railway.

11If it appears to the Minister of Transport that by reason of some exceptional occurrence the net revenue of the fund for any year is or will be abnormally greater or less than the amount which, upon the basis of the rebates for the time being in force, will be required, to pay the sums payable thereout under paragraph five of this Part of this Schedule to the companies in respect of that year, and that there is danger of such instability being thereby occasioned in the rates of the said rebates as to affect prejudicially the operation of the scheme, he shall issue to the tribunal a certificate that in his opinion the rates of the rebates to be allowed in respect of any group of selected traffics specified in the certificate ought to be reviewed, and upon receipt of such a certificate the tribunal shall, notwithstanding anything in this Part of this Schedule, have power to make such alterations in the scheme as they consider desirable for stabilising, so far as practicable, the rates of the rebates to be allowed in respect of that group, and, if they think fit, for securing that any abnormal excess shall be expended, or abnormal deficiency made good, as the case may be, over such period of years as they think proper.

12(1)The tribunal shall have the like powers to make general rules governing their procedure and practice and generally for carrying into effect their functions under this Schedule, and to prescribe a scale of fees for and in connection with proceedings before them, as they have under section twenty-two of the Railways Act, 1921, with respect to their functions under Part III of that Act, but subject to the like approval, consent and limitations as are required or imposed by that section, and rules made under this paragraph may apply, with the necessary adaptations, any of the rules for the time being in force under the said section twenty-two.

(2)Section twenty-one, subsection (2) of section twenty-two, section twenty-three, section twenty-four except subsection (4) thereof, and section twenty-five (except so far as it relates to appeals) of the said Act, shall apply with respect to the functions of the tribunal under this Schedule as they apply for the purposes of that Act.

(4)The annual report of their proceedings under the Railways Act, 1921, made by the tribunal to the Minister of Transport under subsection (3) of section twenty-two of that Act and laid before Parliament, shall include a report of their proceedings under this Schedule and of the operation of the scheme.

15Any sum allowed by a company by way of rebate which may be found not to have been properly allowable (either by reason of the merchandise in respect of which the rebate was allowed not having been so used, shipped or delivered as to constitute it a selected traffic, or for any other reason) shall be recoverable by the company as a debt due from the person to whom it was allowed.
